Emirati teachers take part in Honeywell Educators Programme in U.S

posted on 19/06/2017: 1307 views


Honeywell (NYSE: HON) and long-term partner, the U.S. Space & Rocket Centre (USSRC), are welcoming four UAE-based teachers amongst 200 middle school teachers from 33 countries and 45 U.S. states and territories to the Honeywell Educators at Space Academy (HESA).

Over the course of two consecutive weeks, from June 14 to 27, teachers will experience a unique opportunity to re-ignite their passion for science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education.

Honeywell Hometown Solutions, the company's corporate citizenship initiative in partnership with USSRC, created this award-winning scholarship programme in 2004. Since then, HESA has graduated 2,776 educators from 62 countries and 52 U.S. states and territories, reaching more than 3 million students around the world.

"Technology is changing exponentially. Things we once held as impossibilities are reality – we are on our Journey to Mars," said Dr. Deborah Barnhart, CEO and Executive Director of the U.S. Space & Rocket Centre.

"Educating the next generation of leaders and learners is key to global success. Exploration improves quality of life for all humanity through discoveries in science and engineering. The Honeywell Educators at Space Academy program unites teachers with exciting tools and methods to change the lives of students around the globe," Dr. Barnhart added.

The programme includes 45 hours of classroom and laboratory instruction focused on science, space exploration and leadership skills development. Teachers will participate in astronaut-style exercises such as high-performance jet simulation, scenario-based space missions, coding challenges, land and water survival training and interactive flight dynamics programs. Through these exercises, teachers learn how to reinvigorate their classroom with ideas, lessons and other materials. http://wam.ae/en/details/1395302619691
