I helped develop and coordinate NASA and STEM-themed outreach and education events at NASA workshops, national and state conferences, formal and informal education providers, and minority-serving institutions.
Developed and taught hundreds of professional development workshops to thousands of in-service and pre-service educators. The goals were to improve their knowledge of NASA historical and educational activities and research opportunities, as well as share the latest trends in educational pedagogy, hands-on activities and both project-based and experiential learning strategies. Workshops included:
• U.S. Department of State
• National Science Teacher’s Association
• National After School Conferences
• Space Educators Exploration Conferences
• Walt Disney World International Webcasts
• USA Engineering Festival
• National Council of Teachers of Mathematics
• Florida Association of Science Teachers
Fostered and sustained relationships with NASA offices, science centers, museums and several HBCU's, TCUP's, HSI's and other Minority Serving Institutions.
Supported several high-profile events involving NASA astronauts, U.S. and State congressional representation and state governors (Jeb Bush and Charlie Crist.)
Coordinated the production of, or hosted, numerous video projects and live webcasts for high-profile NASA missions and promotional/educational videos.
Coordinated and conducted hundreds of NASA facility tours into government-restricted facilities, which involved logistics, transportation, facilities access and security clearance.
