Studio City resident, James Edwards Emley, will join teachers from around the world to embark on a learning adventure of a lifetime this June during the Honeywell Educators @ Space Academy program. 

Honeywell announced it has awarded 185 scholarships to teachers from 19 countries and 37 states to attend its simulated astronaut training and professional development program at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center in Huntsville, Alabama.  

James, a teacher at James Madison Middle School in North Hollywood, went to space academy as middle schooler in 1988.  He is excited to experience camp as an adult and collaborate with some of the top educational minds in the country.

He will participate in 45 hours of professional development, as well as an intensive educator curriculum focused on space science and exploration.  Each teacher will also undergo simulated astronaut training including:

·               A high-performance jet simulation

·               Scenario-based space mission

·               Land and water survival training

·               Interactive flight dynamics programs

Only about one-third of 8th graders have the skills to perform even basic mathematic computations. Honeywell Educators @ Space Academy, created in partnership with the U.S. Space & Rocket Center in 2004, is designed to address these trends in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education by providing teachers with new technical skills and teaching techniques that help motivate students not only in the U.S. but around the world.

Since the program’s inception, more than 1,650 teachers have attended this unique and innovative program.
