Brainerd teacher receives aerospace educator grant
Riverside Elementary School teacher Kevin Johnson is a recipient of a 2004 national educator grant.
The Aerospace Education Foundation awarded six teachers in Minnesota an educator grant. The grant is designed to promote aerospace education activities in classrooms from kindergarten through 12th grade. Funds may be used for any aerospace education-related activity, including buying textbooks or videotapes or going on a field trip to an aerospace museum, Air Force base or other aerospace facility.
The program encourages development of innovative aerospace activities within the prescribed curriculum. It also encourages establishing a relationship between the school and the area Air Force Association organization.
