The NE NASA Native American Program should continue its outreach with reservation schools and tribal colleges. There has been considerable growth in this program and maturation is fast approaching. There has been involvement with teachers and children in those schools this past year and that growth should continue.

Specific thrust of the next year’s program will be to encourage more multi-school district educational programs in science and mathematics. The team sent to NASA Ames can form a cadre for next year’s workshop which would include other teachers from the same schools. Although field trips have been a part of past year’s programs, there may be other ways that the NE NASA Space Grant can better serve these schools.

One area that is of interest is the development of a stronger relationship with the SD Space Grant. There have been initial discussions of a joint educational summit during this next year.
