ExMASS SEEKS ADVISORS FOR HIGH SCHOOL RESEARCH TEAMS

The LPI-JSC Center for Lunar Science and Exploration (CLSE) is looking for volunteers to advise a team of high school students participating in the 2016-2017 Exploration of the Moon and Asteroids by Secondary Students (ExMASS) program. ExMASS is part of CLSE’s education efforts with the NASA Solar System Exploration Research Virtual Institute (SSERVI).Mentor_Advisor Role Venn Diagram

 

Working alongside their teachers and an advisor, students undertake authentic, open-inquiry, lunar or asteroid research projects that engage them in the process of science and support the goals of SSERVI. Advisor time commitment varies; in the past, advisors reported spending 1-3 hours a week communicating with their team. Some spent more time. A webpage outlining the role of an advisor can be found here. If you are interested in being an advisor, or would like more information, please contact Andy Shaner at shaner@lpi.usra.edu or 281-486-2163 by August 26, 2016. Advisors will be placed with teams no later than September 30th. The 2016-2017 program begins September 1, 2016 and concludes in April 2017.
