EdAssist partners with Rider University

Rider University is partnering with U.S. Satellite Laboratory (USSL) to provide opportunities for PK-12 teachers to develop science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) expertise.

USSL serves classroom teachers with live, online graduate courses that support the integration of realworld data available from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Each inquiry-based course includes interaction with NASA researchers through U.S. Satellite’s Space Act Agreement. In many states, these courses will count toward the middle school science or mathematics teaching endorsement. Check with your own state department of education for the regulations.

In addition, Rider offers opportunities for students to take online mathematics and science classes that were developed through a grant from the Martinson Family Foundation. Teachers can take a single course or a series of courses.
