The Pre-Service Teacher Institute, or PSTI, was developed to provide a more in-depth experience for pre-service teachers. At the PSTI, pre-service teachers spend two weeks in an intensive experience where they are exposed to problem-based learning, mathematics, science and technology enrichment activities. Pre-service teachers are able to interface with NASA personnel and tour NASA facilities. The educators learn to incorporate NASA's cutting-edge research into lesson plans for elementary and middle school students. The institute culminates with the pre-service teachers developing and teaching problem-based lessons to children from local schools.
