Announcement of Opportunity to become a MESSENGER Educator Fellow: MESSENGER is a NASA Discovery mission that was launched in 2004 and will reach Mercury in 2011. We are recruiting 30 practicing teachers or teacher trainers to become the next cadre of MESSENGER Educator Fellows. These Fellowshelp bring the excitement of this challenging mission to classrooms nationwide by training teachers on the Solar System-focused education materials written in support of the mission. The Fellowship includes an all-expense paid five-day training workshop in Washington, DC, in June 2006.
We would like to request you to please pass on this Announcement of Opportunity to appropriate candidates in your organization, as well as any other interested parties of which you might be aware. This is a national Announcement of Opportunity, and we wish the word to reach as wide an audience as possible to help make the candidate pool, and, therefore, the next cadre of Fellows, as strong as possible. Applications are due March 31, 2006.
