Abstract

The Oklahoma State Department of Education through local public school districts sponsors a program called SMART: Science and Math Association of Rural Teachers. The funding comes from the “No Child Left Behind Act”. The programs focus is to increase content knowledge, to expand the information technology readiness and to emphasize standards-based lessons for K-12 teachers in rural western Oklahoma. SMART supports a community of practice (COP) this community of practice that supports a repository dedicated to exchange of ideas. The focus of this project is Space and its place in our history in accelerating science and math. The SMART-COP was enhanced by including information about space for K-12 teachers. The starting point for this expansion was the Tom P. Stafford Air and Space Museum in Weatherford, Oklahoma.
