The program enables undergraduate and graduate students to encourage participation in NASA's educational activities and generate excitement about scientific discoveries in space science. Up to 50 students are selected for the program and receive a stipend of $2,000.
Hannahoe's project is Turning Eyes to the Big Sky, a project focused on strengthening science curriculum in local public elementary and middle schools. The project provides training, materials and credits from the Montana Office of Public Instruction for 15 area teachers on the subjects of general astronomy, light and optics.
