The Space Foundation has received a grant from the Project Management Institute Educational Foundation (PMIEF) for a two-year initiative to help teachers and students prepare for the demands of the future workforce.

The $192,125 grant will fund an initiative entitled “Out of this World Project Management,” an enhancement of Space Foundation education programs that inspire students to pursue careers in STEM fields — science, technology, engineering and math — and which integrate 21st century skills, including teamwork, collaboration, problem solving, communication and leadership.

“Out of this World Project Management” will target approximately 375 students and 15 teachers in Colorado and in Pune, India, where nearly 30 educators represent the Space Foundation’s international Teacher Liaison program. Using the Space Foundation’s Mars Robotics Laboratory, located at its Discovery Center in Colorado Springs, and PMIEF's Project Management Toolkit for Teachers (Toolkit), an 8-hour training program will be delivered to Pikes Peak region secondary school STEM teachers, and delivered virtually to the teachers in India.
