Council Rock Teacher Wins Scholarship to Attend Space Across the Curriculum Educator Training

Congratulations to Council Rock teacher, Andrea Mangold,  attend­ed a three-day train­ing in Colorado Springs at the Space Foundation Discovery Center as a recip­i­ent of the Dr. Rochelle Abrams Space Across the Curriculum Educator Training Scholarship. Ms. Mangold’s trip to the Discovery Center was ful­ly fund­ed thanks to the new fund­ing stream. A goal of the Dr. Rochelle Abrams Space Across the Curriculum Educator Training Scholarship is to help teach­ers inspire stu­dents to pur­sue careers in the space indus­try by inte­grat­ing spaced-themed activ­i­ties across con­tent areas at all grade lev­els. Ms. Mangold was select­ed through a com­pet­i­tive essay and appli­ca­tion process open to Space Foundation Teacher Liaisons. A Teacher Liaison since 2016, she was a nat­ur­al fit for this sum­mer pro­fes­sion­al learn­ing expe­ri­ence. After spend­ing three days immersed in hands-on learn­ing, Ms. Mangold came back home with strate­gies, lessons, and mate­ri­als to share with her school and dis­trict col­leagues. Such mate­ri­als include merge cube aug­ment­ed real­i­ty devices and a class set of lens­es to make tele­scopes.
