Proceedings of a Conference on Multi-Cultural Aerospace Education Programs in Schools and Museums (June 11-12, 1979).
Joels, Kerry M., Ed.; Podolske, Helen W., Ed.
Twenty papers on multi-cultural aerospace education are presented and cover a wide range of topics, all dealing with some aspect of teaching aerospace education with or without applications to the teaching of minority students. Aerospace education as a motivating force in learning is the topic of two papers. Minorities in aerospace education, as a general topic, is covered in nine papers; four papers deal specifically with women in aerospace education. One paper reviews a course taught by its author in which American values and the history of aviation are related. An explanation of the LEARNBALL format (a student-team approach to learning) for classroom organization is another topic. Implications of space education for the future are made in two other papers.
