New Space Station Page for Educators and Students

NASA Education is launching a new Web page for students and educators about the International Space Station.

Teach Station is the platform for space-station-focused education resources, science and research information for students and teachers, crew updates, and up-to-the minute education news. Visit often and watch for opportunities to connect with the expedition crew members and other NASA education opportunities.

Take a moment to visit the page “A Teacher in Space” and meet Joe Acaba. Read about his experience as an astronaut and his transition from a classroom teacher to the astronaut corps. Acaba’s next assignment is flight engineer for Expedition 31. He will join the crew on the International Space Station in May 2012.

Visit the new Web page at www.nasa.gov/education/teachstation.
