Mission and Module–GT STEM

Selene Frohmberg, Gifted and Talented teacher grades K‐5, will receive $1000.00 for her project, Mission and Module – GT STEM. Students in grades 5‐7 who particpate in the GT program will put their skills to the test at the Challenger Center in Bangor. Students will be part of a mission simulation experience and rocket building module that resembles NASA work at Mission Control or at a space lab conducting experiments and collecting data while orbiting above the Earth. Students will prepare for this off‐site lab experience by studying the science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) in the classroom aligned with our state’s standards, then travel to the Challenger Center to put into practice the creative problem solving skills and decision making necessary to carry out a Simulated Mission of finding and identifying a long tailed comet in space.
