An Astronaut's Map to High Quality STEM Education

Virtual Session Link

On Feb. 9, 1995, Dr. Bernard Harris became the first African American to complete a spacewalk. Now, as part of his 'terrestrial' mission, Dr. Harris leads the Dallas-based National Math and Science Initiative as it works to expand high quality STEM education for all students. Informed by dozens of experts, NMSI is using a new inventory of conditions and practices that comprise successful STEM education to guide its efforts and identify communities where STEM education appears to be striving.
