NASA Educator Resource Center, Math Resource Center Relocate

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo.,

Sept. 25, 2009 – The NASA Educator Resource Center and the Math Resource Center at Southeast Missouri State University have now relocated to Rooms 101 and 102 in Brandt Hall. 

This new, larger facility provides easy access to the free educational materials that NASA has provided for Missouri educators, students and the general public since 1999. 

Posters, educator guides, student activities, DVDs and lithographs of planets, galaxies and astronauts are just some of the items provided as well as the Apollo-era spacesuit which is enjoyed by everyone.  There is a minimal charge for the DVDs. 

The Math Resource Center is a fantastic, free library of materials to enhance mathematics teaching and learning.  This lending library contains trade books, literature, games, manipulatives, measuring devices and much more. 

Everyone is welcome to browse through the materials at the two Centers, and the Centers make a great fieldtrip destination for students of all levels.  Public group tours are offered in addition to workshops and presentations for leaders of scouts, 4-H groups and others.  Pre-service and in-service teacher workshops are easily arranged. 

Watch for teacher workshops on www.MyLearningPlan.com and on the Web site calendar on http://semo.edu/nasaerc.  Additional information is available by e-mailing nasaerc@semo.edu or calling (573) 986-4974 or (877) 321-NASA.
