AB: There is a major change afoot in the classroom teaching environment that is being driven more and more by the push for alignment to national, state, and local standards and high stakes testing. This change has the possibility to greatly effect the ability to bring in outside curriculum and content to the classroom (i.e., NASA programming and content) that is not direcly aligned to these standards. Programs that can design and align their content, data, and delivery to resonate with these new changes will be more easily embraced and have a greater success to become accepted. The Mars Student Imaging Project will be highlighted as such a program. To date, over 13,000 students nationwide have participated in using authentic research at Mars. The professional development phases that have been created around this program will be outlined.
