Abstract

"The general problem is: What are the characteristics of the aerospace education workshop participant in relation to curriculum and instruction utilization after the completion of the workshop in which NASA participated? The purpose of this study is to describe selected aerospace education workshops across the United States. These workshops were conducted during the sumer of 1974, and NASA's Space Science Education Project participated in the selected aerospace workshops. The space Science Education Workshop Follow-Up Survey was designed to collect data on the background of the participant and the usage of aerospace curriculum and instruction in the participant's classroom. The follow-up survey gathers data on sex, present teaching position, teaching level, duration of aerospace workshop, and visits to NASA facilities. This information leads to the following research questions: 1. What is the use of the aerospace curriculum guide in relation to participant characteristics? 2. What is the incorporation of aerospace concepts in relation to participants characteristics? 3. What amount of aerospace concepts are being taught in relation to participant characteristics? 4. What is the relation of teaching an aerospace unit to participant characteristics? 5. What is the relation of the workshop content difficulty of NASA's presentation to participant characteristics? 6. What relations exist between developing teaching methods and participant characteristics? 7. What relations exist between continuing an aerospace workshop in the future and participant characteristics?"
