Support Program for Instructional Competency in Astronomy

Project SPICA sponsored six years of summer workshops, attracting more than 185 teachers from 41 states. The participating teachers developed and evaluated astronomy activities for the classroom, and disseminated these activities to their colleagues. SPICA agents agreed to conduct local workshops for their school systems and to serve as support for outreach activities. To date, SPICA representatives have presented more than 650 workshops to their communities, reaching almost 14,000 teachers of all grade levels.

Grade levels: All
