ATSE and the Sir Ross and Sir Keith Smith Fund are sponsoring teachers to attend the International Astronautical Congress (IAC2017) is to be held at the Convention Centre in Adelaide 25-29 September this year.
Each recipient of an IAC2017 Teachers Scholarship will receive free Congress registration and be expected to attend one day of the Congress. Attendance at appropriate lecture sessions should provide teachers with knowledge and understanding of aerospace science which could be used to illustrate applications of science in their school classes. It is planned that each teacher will be paired with a suitable mentor who will guide their selection of lecture sessions and meet with them at the Congress.
South Australian teachers can apply for the IAC2017 Teachers Scholarship using the Application Form on the SASTA website. Application close on Tuesday 27 June, 2017.
