The Smart Skies Education Team accepts the 2013 Strickler Award

The NASA Smart Skies Education Program Team was recently honored with the 2013 Dr. Mervin K. Strickler Award for Aerospace Education Leadership. The award recognizes those committed to aerospace education through the demonstration of outstanding accomplishment to the aerospace field through education over a continuous period of time. On November 12, four members of the team (Greg Condon, Miriam Landesman, Bill Preston, and Rebecca Green) attended the National Coalition for Aviation and Space Education to accept the award. The team collaborated in designing, developing, and implementing the Smart Skies Program. Smart Skies is a decade-long NASA mathematics education project for grades 5 through 9. Smart Skies inspires and enhances student interest in careers in airspace systems, and increases understanding and proficiency in related standards-based mathematics and science by using the daily experiences of air traffic controllers as a teaching and motivation tool. To date, the Smart Skies air traffic controller simulator website received more than a quarter of a million student visits, and the Sector 33 app has been downloaded more than 140,000 times since its release. It has reached more than 24,000 teachers and more than 78,000 students through its partners. The Smart Skies Team alone has directly trained more than 3,000 educators.
