NASA Launches Summer of Innovation

Over at the Curriculum Matters blog, my colleague Erik Robelen writes about NASA’s new Summer of Innovation initiative. The program is designed to engage thousands of middle school students in STEM—science, technology, engineering, and math—activities during the summer months.

“I hope that by getting these students involved in NASA’s missions and programs now, it may pave the way for a new generation of scientists and engineers, which is critically important to our nation’s future,” NASA Administrator Charles Bolden says in a news release announcing the initiative’s launch (so to speak).
