A Tucker County teacher has been selected as a "Solar System Ambassador Master Teacher" by NASA.
Eileen Poling is a teacher at Tucker Valley Elementary and is excited to take on the title.
Poling will serve for two years furthering NASA goals in providing quality professional development for teachers and creating learning opportunities to inspire students.
The Solar System Ambassadors Program is a public outreach program designed to work with motivated volunteers across the nation. These volunteers communicate the excitement of JPL's space exploration missions and information about recent discoveries to people in their local communities.
If you are interested in sharing a specific topic to your group or if you would like an activity for children, you may contact Eileen at [email protected].
The Solar System Ambassadors Program is sponsored by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, CA, an operating division of the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) and a lead research and development center for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).
