About the Satellite Educators Association

Founded in 1989 in response to an overwhelmingly positive turn out for the first Satellites & Education Conference, the Satellite Educators Association (SEA) is a professional organization of educators and those who want to enhance the education environment to excite students about science, technology, engineering, and math through space-based technology – satellites and satellite data. Association activities include professional development for teachers, especially the annual Satellites & Education Conference and its Multinational Youth Studying Practical Applications of Climatic Events (M.Y. S.P.A.C.E.) program. SEA members assist in full curriculum development with lesson activities that meet national standards; supplemental curriculum development tailored to specific state standards, learning groups, and classrooms on request; promote public outreach; and consult with aerospace businesses in meeting their educational outreach requirements. The SEA is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit corporation. It is supported by NOAA's National Environmental Satellite, Data and Information Service (NESDIS). For more information about the Satellite Educators Association, membership, access to the monthly on-line newsletter, and its annual Satellites & Education Conference for teachers, please visit http://www.SatEd.org.

About the M.Y. S.P.A.C.E. Program

The Multinational Youth Studying Practical Applications of Climatic Events (M.Y. S.P.A.C.E.) program began in 2002 as a component of the Satellites & Education Conference to accomodate, develop and support high interest in teams of high school students doing research on the impact of global environmental issues on the areas local to their schools. There are currently seven active and developing M.Y. S.P.A.C.E. high school research sites world wide and room for more. The M.Y. S.P.A.C.E. research program is supported by NOAA-CREST West. For more information about the M.Y. S.P.A.C.E. program and NOAA-CREST West, please visit the NOAA-CREST West home page.
