DOD STARBASE Indiana
In 1989, Barbara Koscak, a recognized leader in education, was invited to the White House by President Ronald Reagan and awarded the Federal Aviation Administration's National Educator of the Year Award. The President selected her because of her ability to excite her students to learn Science, Math, Engineering and Technology (STEM) and to develop their potential for challenging careers. Knowing that all children love airplanes, she had created a curriculum built around space and the physics of flight – a curriculum that was "hands-on, minds-on."
