Abstract

The Earth and Space Science Technological Education Project (ESSTEP) is a professional development program for secondary and college faculty. This program addresses the growing need to provide students with the critical academic and personal skills necessary for successful technical careers in the earth, space and environmental sciences. ESSTEP has provided educators with the skills to infuse global positioning system, geographic information systems and image processing into their classrooms. As a result of their ESSTEP experiences, educators are enhancing student learning, promoting science and technology careers, and catalyzing the development of new courses and materials.
