This Web Seminar, sponsored by the NASA Explorer Schools program, took place on December 12, 2007, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., Eastern Time. Presenting was Keely Keyser, NASA Explorer Schools Coordinator at NASA’s Stennis Space Center in Mississippi. This web seminar focused on the importance of parental involvement in children’s education and successful strategies for involving parent in education.

This web seminar was the second of two related to the NASA Symposium that took place at the NSTA Area Conference on Science Education in Denver, Colorado. The presenter talked about the importance of parental involvement in children’s education and successful strategies for involving parent in education. She also shared information about a variety of NASA educational programs and resources available electronically at NASA. The Web seminar was designed for educators of grades K-6.


Twenty-one (21) participants were present at the live Web Seminar in addition to the presenter and NSTA staff. Participating educators represented the states of Arizona, California, Florida, Kansas, Maine, Nebraska, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, and Texas. One participant attended the program from Spain. Seminar participants received a one year subscription to one of NSTA’s SciGuide for completing the evaluation form at the end of the program.


Here are some comments provided by the participants at the end of the Web Seminar:

  • "Keely (the presenter) had so many suggestions for resources to bring
    science to the schools and get the parents involved.”


  • “I enjoyed the suggestions from participants as well as the presenter suggestions.”


  • “I LOVED learning about opportunities to apply for selection to be a
    NASA school!”


  • “I was not aware of the priority that NASA was giving to promote and
    support family participation.”

Thanks to the participants and the presenter for the learning opportunity, the interactions, and a job well done!
