Participate in the ISS National Lab Education Project Workshop (Amended Announcement)

As a key feature of the 2011 NASA Education Stakeholders Summit, the International Space Station National Laboratory Education Project, or ISS NLEP, will be announcing opportunities for new educational activities and partnerships during a workshop scheduled on Friday, Dec. 2, 2011. These opportunities will include a variety of frameworks to execute your ideas, including flying your experiment aboard the space station and using reduced-gravity facilities and ground-based environments using Space Station resources.

The objective of ISS NLEP is to strengthen a link between the unique venue of the space station and science, technology, engineering and mathematics, or STEM, education. The objective of the workshop is to bring together researchers, academicians and interested parties for discussions on upcoming opportunities. Online registration is now closed. However, on-site registration is still available through Friday, Dec. 2, 2011.
