"One of our district science goals this year is to visit STEM schools around the country to see how this model could be implemented in our schools," notes Ms. Scott in her application. "I have a vision for becoming STEM certified through the NASA's Endeavor Project so that I can learn the best practices for teaching my students and mentoring my colleagues."

Ms. Scott is one of 42 U.S. science, technology, engineering and mathematics middle and high school teachers who will work beside NASA engineers and mentors. The innovative program focuses on aeronautics modeling and simulation and provides teachers with the opportunity to experience cutting-edge technology, explore aerospace engineering concepts, and develop hands-on lessons that will engage and inspire students.

Ms. Scott will begin the program on Jan. 11, 2012 with a live conference.
