The Aviation Education Teacher Resource Center: A Unique Strategy to Improve Math and Science Education


A unique program that enhances the applied mathematics and science knowledge of teachers was established at Embry Riddle Aeronautical University (fRAU). The program provides materials, equipment, education, and curriculum development services to educators at no cost. This model of collaboration between a university and a school district is presented as a template to enhance staff development efforts in other districts. Although this program presents a specific orientation of interest unique to the collaborating institutions, it clearly demonstrates how resources can be acquired and assembled by capitalizing on the strengths of the participants.
