STELLAR Awards Invite Nominees

Tue Jan 5 2010

NASATalk, a new web-based collaborative that features teacher reflections on their use of NASA products, is seeking nominees for its STELLAR Awards, which recognize excellent uses of NASA STEM materials by educators in classrooms or informal settings.

The STELLAR acronym represents the intent of the award: STEM Teaching Excellence for Leading, Learning, Articulation, and Reflection. The STELLAR Awards will be given regularly based on certain themes, such as human spaceflight, Earth science, aeronautics, astronomy, space science, and exploration. A nomination can be completed at the NASATalk website. The online form outlines the award criteria and encourages thoughtful, complete reflections about using NASA products. First place winners will receive a $100 stipend, and honorable mention winners will receive $50 stipends.

The NASA-sponsored Classroom of the Future created and manages the NASATalk site.
