The purpose of a NASA Educator Resource Center (ERC) is to help teachers learn about and use NASA’s educational resources. The ERCs provide educators with demonstrations of educational technologies such as NASA educational Web sites and NASA Television. ERCs provide inservice and preservice training utilizing NASA instructional products. Educators also have the opportunity to preview, copy, and receive NASA instructional products.
The ERC at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex is managed by the Florida Space Grant Consortium. FSGC’s ERC and Exploration Station activities reach a significant number of NASA’s target audience. In 2006, this included 6,600 teachers, 20,400 students, and 6,700 public visitors. 2007 visitors included 8,248 teachers, 18,328 students, and 8,698 from the general public. The partnership supported 1,800 teacher workshop participants.
