Montana Educator Brings Mars Lesson Close to Home

November 7, 2018View for printing

This year, Montana took a leap toward bringing the Next Generation Science Standards to the state's K-12 teachers by kicking off its first state science teachers conference.

This pilot meeting brought together more than 100 of the state's top educators, who shared best practices with the teaching community. One of these experts was Natalia Kolnik, a native of Bozeman, Montana, who leads education programs at the Children's Museum of Bozeman. Her program stood out among attendees (including us) not just because her programs involved designing missions to Mars, but also because of her commitment to making connections with scientists in the area. We caught up with Kolnik to learn more about how, with the help of local companies - including some that have produced components for JPL missions - she turned a JPL lesson into an exploration of careers in STEM.
