    Each year, StellarXplorers hosts a National Space Design Competition, which challenges teams of students across the country to solve real-world orbit determination, satellite component planning, and launch vehicle selection scenarios presented in a series of online rounds. Students have a chance to solve real-world space design challenges, and the best part is no prior experience is required for participation. We provide all the necessary training and software resources needed for success. We also have a technical mentor program that allows industry professionals to volunteer their time and help teams prepare.

    Team registrations for our ninth season of competition (StellarXplorers IX) are being accepted through October 17, 2022. Competition rounds are scheduled to begin in late October, and every team is guaranteed three rounds of participation. If you’re interested in learning more (schedule, cost, team composition, registration process, etc.), please visit our website: www.stellarxplorers.org/competition.

    The University of Portland STEM Education and Outreach Center offers a self-paced, on-line Cascadia Earthquake Education course. The course is organized into four modules that introduce plate tectonics and earthquake science and applies specifically to Cascadia Earthquakes and Tsunamis. 

     This PD contains lesson plans for classroom activities and demonstrations. These lesson plans are designed for middle school students but can be adapted to elementary and high school levels. Each lesson plan specifies the NGSS standards addressed. Most lesson plans have an accompanying set of supporting resources such as student worksheets and answer keys.

    It is estimated that it will take about 28 hours to complete the course, and successful completion of the course will result in receipt of a certificate for 28 PDUs. If you have an interest and would like to register for the course, please send your preferred email address to: Robert Butler, University of Portland, butler@up.edu . You will then receive information on how to access this free on-line course!
