Program Overview

The Heliophysics Educator Ambassador (HEA) program will focus on in-depth learning experiences around Earth, Space, and Physical Science topics for educators teaching in middle and high school grades.

The goal of the HEA program is to develop the capacity and provide the opportunity for educators to train other teachers on NASA Heliophysics science and educational resources. This program will provide educators with a week-long training and follow-up support for several years via teleconference calls and other electronic communications. We expect that the educators involved in the HEA program will implement lesson plans based on NASA Heliophysics education resources in their own classrooms and also train other teachers at local and regional professional development conferences or meetings.
