The Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum News and Events calendar for public events currently has the 2012 SSEP National Conference in their Spotlight showcase. See: http://airandspace.si.edu/events/
SSEP delegations from across the nation are flying into Washington, DC, this weekend to attend the Conference. The final Conference Schedule of events is now posted at the 2012 SSEP Conference page. For video highlights of last year’s 2011 Conference, see the Main SSEP Conference page.
SSEP is undertaken by the National Center for Earth and Space Science Education (NCESSE) in partnership with NanoRacks LLC. This on-orbit research opportunity is enabled through NanoRacks LLC, which is working in partnership with NASA under a Space Act Agreement as part of the utilization of the International Space Station as a National Laboratory.
SSEP is the first pre-college STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) education program that is both a U.S. national initiative and implemented as an on-orbit commercial space venture.
