GAI receives NASA/ISGC grant

Posted on December 29, 2012

The GAI was awarded the NASA Iowa Space Grant Consortium 2012-2014 UNI Base Program (led by Dr. John Ophus (PI) in UNI Science Education).  The project uses high-altitude ballooning to engage geography/social science and science education students in a multidisciplinary undergraduate research project.  Through this, cohorts of Secondary Social Science Education majors will develop and test lesson plans that integrate geography, science, and technology.
