NASA Training

Cass Co. – The Cass County Sheriff’s Office D.A.R.E. Unit recently held training for teachers in several school districts from Cass County. The training is part of this year’s theme for the DARE Unit, “Reach for the Stars, Not for Drugs.” The one-day event was taught by NASA Education Specialist Ollie Bogdon and included lessons on the solar system, life of a star, rockets, and careers and connections with NASA. The training, which is part of the Kansas City Regional Professional Development Center, helps teachers incorporate new learning ideas that are included in their grade level expectations. The Sheriff’s Office D.A.R.E. Unit hosted the training as part of its space theme for 2008-2009.

“This gives us, as D.A.R.E. Officers, an opportunity to work with teachers and students outside of a typical D.A.R.E. lesson. Rockets, space, and NASA are interesting to students. By having this training and working with these teachers we increase the amount of time and impact we have together on kids,” said D.A.R.E. Officer Christine Eddleman

Teachers from the Pleasant Hill, Drexel, Cass Midway, East Lynne, Strasburg, and Sherwood School Districts participated.
