The SMT Center and the Kenan Fellows Program for Curriculum and Leadership Development received a NASA grant  to provide support for Kenan Fellows to develop curriculum focused on aerospace and aviation. The Fellows spent six weeks in a research externship working with business and industry or nonprofits that have a focus in aerospace and aviation. Each Fellow developed curriculum based on the externship experience. Each lesson below includes the alignment to state standards.
