Teachers Academy at Martinsburg STARBASE

Berkeley County teachers Nicole Krause and Cathy Stickel watch their "thermal protection shield" stand up to the heat of a gas flame during a workshop hosted by the Martinsburg STARBASE at the 167th Airlift Wing, Martinsburg, WV, on July 17, 2009. Twenty-six local teachers participated in the teacher’s academy which focused on creative ways to teach science, technology, engineering, and math to intermediate school students. On the last day of the workshop, Todd Ensign, Educator Resource Center Program Manager for NASA IV & V Facility based in Fairmont, had the teachers design a heat shield made of wire mesh and aluminum foil, similar to the thermal protection that will be used for the future Ares spacecraft which is expected to take man back to the moon.
