  • Lead Teacher Training will be centrally located in either Montgomery or Birmingham on May 9, 2015. (Exact location TBA shortly…..details to follow.) The training for lead personnel is mandatory, and not optional.
  • Participation in two (2) field days to the Marshall Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville (The first, during the second week of competition – The second, on August 14th for the final International Space Station Competition) are not optional.
