* We are using the multiplier effect. The Sun Earth day at Houston Museum of Natural Science, March 22, 2003, included Rice University and Houston Astronomical Society. Rice distributed CD’s on weather and the Astronomical Society set-up telescopes for observing the Sun’s activities. We are presenting planning a Mars Event in January 2004. This event will include the following participants: Passport to Knowledge, University of Texas at Brownsville, Scholars Academy at University of Houston Downtown and, Houston Geological Society, and teachers and students from Brownsville area of Texas.

This has been the most beneficial class I have ever taken. It has helped me in my professional growth and my personal growth. I am a much

better teacher due to the knowledge I am taking with me. My technology content has increased dramatically! Now I am once

again a goal setter and this can be attributed to this program. I have left with new and exciting ideas that have become goals.

I am now considered an "expert" in my school. Where before I was always the one asking questions.

Participant Feedback and Results Participant Feedback and Results

As an educator, I have been involved for a NUMBER of years with NASA and other related programs. ISS EarthKAM is, by far the most educationally valuable program I have EVER worked with. The fact that it is REAL SCIENCE appeals to and inspires the scientists of tomorrow. I often think of a NASA scientist I met in San Diego when I brought my class to CAL Space in the 90's. She told of working as a student with the mapping of Mercury and how it had inspired her to devote her life's work to NASA and space exploration. THIS is what ISS EarthKAM is doing for the next generation of space explorers! One of our students involved in ISS EarthKAM who is at Purdue in aeronautical engineering, another is at Rochester in astrophysics and yet another is working in the field at Stanford! THIS is, I believe, is a DIRECT RESULT of the REAL SCIENCE that only ISS EarthKAM can provide!

Prior to my participation in USRP, I was concentrating in aeronautics at my university. My experiences at Kennedy Space Center have inspired me to learn more about space and change my concentration to astronautics.

propulsion systems, which holds out hope of improving safety and propulsion systems, which holds out hope of improving safety and long-term viability of various engines. Moreover, I will be continuing long-term viability of various engines. Moreover, I will be continuing to work in this area when I return to school in the fall, since we are to work in this area when I return to school in the fall, since we are collaborating with NASA in this area (UA has the jet engine testbed collaborating with NASA in this area (UA has the jet engine testbed that is being used to test NASA software). I will be tasked with that is being used to test NASA software). I will be tasked with integrating the external code that uses fuzzy logic with the engine integrating the external code that uses fuzzy logic with the engine control environment already executed under LabView; I have control environment already executed under LabView; I have basically spent the summer reserching fuzzy logic and practicing basically spent the summer reserching fuzzy logic and practicing techniques to prepare for this task (learning LabView, simulating an techniques to prepare for this task (learning LabView, simulating an open-loop engine controller, debugging real-time data acquisition, open-loop engine controller, debugging real-time data acquisition, etc.). In the long run, we could be on the path to an "intelligent etc.).
