NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston is inviting education-focused media to attend a two-day #spacED event on Sept. 15 and 16. The event will highlight the International Space Station and the one-year mission with astronaut Scott Kelly and cosmonaut Mikhail Kornienko.

As students and educators get into the flow of the 2015-2016 school year, Kelly and Kornienko will be coming up on the halfway point of their yearlong stay in space, offering a unique chance for educators to spark students’ interests in space exploration, as well as the supporting fields of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).

The event will showcase resources available to educators and tips on how to use them in the classroom. Participants also will hear from NASA experts, learn more about the one-year mission and tour Johnson facilities.

Media interested in participating must be affiliated with a media outlet whose target audience is educators or students, and apply online by 8 a.m. CDT on Monday, Aug. 17. Space is limited. For more information, please contact Ashle Harris at ashle.s.harris@nasa.gov.
