Maud ISD is excited to announce that Maud Elementary Teacher, Braden Brown has been selected for the prestigious LiftOff Summer Institute to be held at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston this summer. Mr. Brown will spend a week with NASA scientists and astronauts to enhance their knowledge in all areas of STEM.
This nationally competitive program sponsored by NASA’s Texas Space Grant Consortium selects teachers who will increase their knowledge of science, technology, engineering, and math through space education.
LiftOff is a collaborative effort of Texas Space Grant Consortium members and affiliates, NASA, and industry. Teachers apply for LiftOff and are selected competitively. The workshops are organized around an aerospace or space science theme drawn from NASA’s diverse engineering and scientific research programs. The weeklong institute features a series of workshops, hands-on activities, field investigations, and presentations by NASA scientists and engineers working on various missions.
Maud ISD is very proud of the recognition and accomplishments of Mr. Braden Brown, who is an MISD alumnus and also celebrating 15 years of working for the district.
