When educators are needed to assist in developing or reviewing material, a call is put out for volunteers.

WGBH in Boston has been awarded a NASA cooperative agreement to develop new instructional models and digital media tools for STEM classrooms. Produced by WGBH in collaboration with NASA, these resources will be distributed free of charge through the PBS LearningMedia platform, reaching millions of students and teachers nationally. We’re looking for 50 teacher advisors to help us with this mission. Applications are due April 11, 2016.  Click here for further information and the application.  Contact carolyn_jacobs@wgbh.org with any questions.
