Honeywell Educators at Space Academy equips teachers to inspire students through science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education 
Applications accepted until November 14, 2017
 
DUBAI, United Arab Emirates, October 24, 2017:  Honeywell (NYSE: HON,) a global software-industrial company, following the successful trip of UAE teachers last year, is inviting eligible teachers to join educators from around the world at the prestigious Honeywell Educators at Space Academy (HESA). The program will be held at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center (USSRC), in Huntsville, Alabama; home to Space Camp®, the Apollo 16 capsule and the Official Visitor Center for NASA Marshall Space Flight Center.
 
The innovative, all expenses paid professional development program reinvigorates science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) classes for students, by equipping teachers with inspiration for lesson plans and other materials to create an unforgettable learning experience for the next generation of scientists and engineers in the UAE. 
 
Norm Gilsdorf, president, Honeywell, Middle East, Russia, Turkey and Central Asia, said, “Honeywell has been involved in most major space missions and satellite projects since the beginning of the space age, and we are committed to supporting the UAE government's ambitious science and space programs, including Mars Mission 2021. Last year, we welcomed four UAE-based teachers to the HESA program who are now actively sharing their experiences with students, some of whom may become our scientists and astronauts of the future. We believe that investing in teachers is an investment in our youth, and we look forward to welcoming another group of teachers from the UAE at Honeywell Educators at Space Academy in 2018.” 
 
Created in 2004 by Honeywell Hometown Solutions, the company's corporate citizenship initiative, in partnership with the USSRC, HESA is a scholarship program that has graduated 2,776 educators from 62 countries and 52 U.S. states and territories since it launched, reaching more than 3 million students around the world. 
 
One of the Honeywell sponsored UAE-based teachers to participate in the June 2017 program was Buthaina Abandah from the Applied Technology High School, Abu Dhabi. Commenting on her experience she said, “Going to Space Camp was a transformative experience for me. Not only was it inspiring, I met teachers from all over the world and together we learned new techniques to make STEM education more fun and engaging for our students. I strongly recommend all teachers to apply for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and attend Honeywell Educators at Space Academy in 2018.”
 
The program includes 45 hours of classroom and laboratory instruction focused on science, space exploration and leadership skills development. Teachers will participate in astronaut-style exercises such as high-performance jet simulation, scenario-based space missions, coding challenges, land and water survival training and interactive flight dynamics programs. Through these exercises, teachers can create more dynamic and engaging STEM-related learning experiences for their students. 
 
The week-long program runs twice at the USSRC's Space Camp, from 13-19 June, 2018 and 20-26 June, 2018. To be eligible for the 2018 HESA program, educators must be currently teaching science or math to students 10-14 years old and should continue to teach these subject areas through 2018. Eligible teachers can apply online at https://educators.honeywell.com/application, and must submit their applications before November 14, 2017.
