Tony Knapp, Principal, NASA Explorer School-North Ridge Elementary, Cable Partnerships Award

Hoping to expand his students’ interest in math, science and technology, Tony Knapp successfully implemented the NASA Explorer School program at his school. As part of the program, students are motivated to learn by participating in after-school clubs, designing experiments, competing in national technology and science competitions, and learning directly from NASA astronauts and other math, science and technology experts. Additionally, the school’s partnership with Time Warner Cable has given students access to television production and to the NASA Channel and NASA programming and activities.

In his podcast (MP3, 11 MB), Knapp talks about a couple of the experiments that students designed and conducted for NASA, the resources both NASA and Time Warner Cable provide, parent involvement and the online resources NASA has available for other schools.
