NASA’s Implementation Plan for Education provides support to in-service educators in the areas of technology and science. Some programs include financial support, while others require district or individual financial contributions. NASA teacher enhancement programs offer Continuing Education Units (CEUs), graduate credits, or simply a unique experience that can be shared with students back in the classroom for years to come. Some opportunities can last a few hours, while others are one- to two-week intensive sessions, or summer-long adventures. All are offered through the many NASAS facilities located throughout the United States. Read on to discover how you can immerse yourself in NASA science during the summer.

This article discusses the various types of programs NASA sponsors for teachers' PD in both science and pedagogy. The variety of workshops offered is still accurate, but the workshop it focuses on NEW has been discontinued. In the meantime, NASA has expanded its online programs. However, there are still in-person opportunities and to find out more about those try http://www.nasa.gov/audience/foreducators/current-opps-index.html or a search on the same website for "workshops for educators" but be sure to check the years on the results to make sure they are current.
