Lesson plans developed by NASA's Education Outreach Project blasted off into the classroom at Carter Lomax Middle School recently.
The plans are geared toward the promotion of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) into everyday lessons. Using the International Space Station as the foundation, NASA engineers developed plans aligned to the National Science Standards.
Teachers of Lomax taught the lessons and provided input on how to make the lessons more student friendly. Teachers and NASA engineers discussed the lessons, compared notes and worked working together to make sure the lessons were as exciting and fun as everyone had planned.
Aerospace engineers from Johnson Space Center in Houston and Pasadena ISD Superintendent Dr. Kirk Lewis were on the campus to watch the lessons.
