    This webinar will introduce Air & Waste Management Association (A&WMA) to middle and high school science teachers across the US and Canada and share an exciting paid opportunity with teachers to bring Air Quality into their science classrooms. 

    We are looking to recruit middle and high school science teachers to pilot the AQ6-12 lesson in their classroom and provide the K12 Education Committee with feedback. Selected teachers may earn a $1,000.00 stipend during the Spring 2023 semester for completing all tasks. Teachers from public, charter, and private or independent schools who teach environmental science topics in their science classrooms are eligible to apply. We anticipate about 10 hours of work.

    We strongly encourage Title I middle and high school science teachers to submit an application as well as middle and high school science teachers from schools in areas chronically exposed to poor air quality.

    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:
