What’s up Wednesday PEACK

Thanks to a generous contribution from Dr. and Mrs. Ernst Volgenau, Morehead State is excited to host the Program for the Enhancement of Aerospace Careers in Kentucky (PEACK).

PEACK is a two week program that provides exciting new curriculum to teachers in Morehead State’s 22-county service region. Participating teachers will take away lessons and project-based learning activities that are aligned with Next Generation grades 6-8 Core Standards and ongoing efforts to promote STEM education.

During the current PEACK session, participants are utilizing Smith-Booth Hall, Morehead State’s Space Science Center, to build and test their own Mars rovers. The teachers will get to take the completed rovers back to their schools for classroom use.

MSU serves as a regional hub for developmental and educational initiatives in Kentucky. Thanks to contributions from alumni and friends, resources like PEACK continue to be made possible.
