Educational Initiatives & Academic Alliances
DFW SIM Chapter Education Initiative Program (Click link)
We have benefited recently from a wave of mementum as we have reached a four-year partnership agreement between Lewisville ISD, Harvard and SIM-DFW to incorporate WWT into the curriculum compatible with the TEK standards for K-12 science classes.
The Microsoft Worldwide telescope project is created by Microsoft Corporation to stimulate student interest in Science, Math, Engineering and Technology, the so-called STEM curriculum. Similar to Google's Planet Earth Project, the WW Telescope reaches into the unlimited cosmos with the added capability of creating a journey or an adventure to anywhere in the universe. Once completed the module can be saved like a "AAA Triptik" for others to follow and learn.
