The two workshops funded by this grant, which will take place from July 11-15, 2022 and July 25-29, 2022, will focus on the unique history and culture of Florida's Space Coast. This project
will allow K-12 educators of multiple disciplines from around the country explore the ways in which the politics, science, and culture intersected in a unique geographical location from the
1950's through today.
Our leadership team brings decades of professional development experience to the participants of this NEH Landmarks grant. Each is highly regarded in his or her field of expertise and will
provide a unique perspective and guide participants in developing the skills and dispositions that are necessary for authentic historical inquiry for The Space Race on the Space Coast.
The Landmarks of American History and Culture program supports a series of one-week workshops for K-12 educators
across the nation to enhance and strengthen humanities teaching at the K-12 level. Projects employ a place-based approach and are designed to offer educators a unique and compelling
opportunity to deepen and expand their knowledge of the diverse histories, cultures, traditions, languages, and perspectives of the American people.
