BRUNSWICK, Maine (WMTW) – Brunswick St. A middle school teacher at John’s Catholic School was one of five teachers selected for the Human Flight Program.
The Teachers in Space Human Flight Program will take teachers on a microgravity flight. Teachers can then collect and compare heart rate data, EKG, blood oxygen and other vital signs.
The program seeks to prepare teachers for spaceflight activities that will help them work with students.
Science teacher Karen Iuzzolino-Paquin was selected along with other educators from New Jersey, New York and Texas.
“Adding human flight to our program is a phenomenal first for Teachers in Space this year,” said President Elizabeth Kennick. “Since 2012 we have been helping teachers build and fly high altitude and space experiments. Now, we’re putting teachers on those flights with classroom experiments with Zero-G. Helping teachers understand and experience real space activities is key to student engagement and success in the space industry.”
Teachers in Space helps train teachers to work with their students to design and build flight-ready experiments.
