The Florida Space Grant Consortium understands the importance of planting the seeds of scientific inquiry into the minds of our youth. Every child is a natural born scientist but too often this inherent curiosity is crushed by the negative influences of society. Our ultimate goal, and mission, is to re-establish this sense of wonder about the natural world amongst our children. Here you will find a full list and description of all of our pre-college activity programs. We are always open to suggestions from the public on how we can improve so feel free to contact us with your recommendations.
- Lunar Rover Competition
- Florida Engineering Education Conference
- Challenger Center Teacher Workshops
This project provides one eight-hour professional development workshops for middle school teachers and pre-service teachers; curriculum for classroom instruction; and student engagement challenges for the students of the teachers attending the workshops to demonstrate their new knowledge and excitement for space exploration by conducting a simulated NASA space mission or other hands-on minds-on STEM activities. Teachers utilized skills, lessons and curriculum from the workshops to train and prepare up to thirty (30) of their students to attend hands-on, critical thinking activities at the Challenger Learning Center of Tallahassee.
