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 real-world 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.


At Rider University, teachers have three ways to earn an Online Endeavor STEM certificate or go on to earn a master’s degree in STEM Teacher Leadership.
