TEACHER AMBASSADOR PROGRAMME
The EMM Teacher Ambassador Programme was established in October 2015 to focus on enabling teachers from all school levels to take part in EMM. The Teacher Ambassador Programme aims to:
- Create a dynamic community for STEM teachers to represent their schools in EMM initiatives.
- Enable and equip ambassador teachers with knowledge and material required to educate the next generation of scientists and engineers.
- Support hands-on learning to motivate students to continue their education in the field of science.
The programme includes interactive space-related workshops and training, STEM material and kits to support classroom activities, and now announcing its first competition.
The programme also includes a competition titled “Newton STEM challenge”, which aims to utilise teacher’s creativity in the process of activities development. In this first version the teachers will need to design a game, experiment, or activity to explain Newton’s laws of motion based on their current curriculum learning objectives leaving the target age open to them to decide for their design.
EMM Teacher Ambassadors help the EMM team to raise awareness about the importance of STEM fields, implementing school activities and communicating with other educators about space science and the EMM.
