Today, Texas Instruments announced a new partnership with NASA for STEM education that they are calling mISSion imaginaTIon. The new initiative launched with an online quiz about manned space missions, and there will soon be TI-Nspire activities with mISSion imaginaTIon. A year long STEM design challenge encourages students to work on four space-related challenges, and the winner will receive a video chat with a NASA expert and a TI-Nspire CX graphing calculator.
“Imagination is the fuel that feeds progress and innovation,” said Peter Balyta, Ph.D., president of TI Education Technology. “Alongside NASA, we are excited to unleash student creativity as students explore how science, technology, engineering and math can solve future problems on earth, in space and beyond.”
It is a great benefit to teachers that use Texas Instruments products in their classrooms that TI continues to develop engaging classroom curriculum such as STEM Behind Hollywood, STEM Behind Health, and now mISSion imaginaTIon.
