Returning members include Debbie Morgan, Alison Keene, Helen Coyle, Diane Ripollone, Elizabeth Sebastian, Maki Fullerton, Noelle Luccioni, Christine Girtain, Jeannine Gelhaus, Jose Rivas, Katrina Madok, Natasha Rabinowitz, Luna Kelondra, Sian Proctor and Paul Munshower.

“Because of Infiniscope, I have been able to bring space exploration into my lab, allowing my students to travel and explore various aspects of our universe," said Luccioni, returning board member and STEM teacher at Philadelphia Performing Arts.

The current board will serve through January 2021 and will be providing guidance on universal design for learning principles for all Infiniscope lessons, input on a template that will enable teacher-created virtual field trips and Infiniscope website design for version 2.0. In addition, the board will participate in workshops and conferences, social media engagements and community engagements to share Infiniscope and establish connections within the community.

"As a returning Infiniscope advisory board member, I look forward to engaging a new group of leaders in earth and space education,” said Girtain, a teacher at Toms River High School in New Jersey. “We will be training teachers at workshops and sharing curriculum that features NASA visuals and interactive components to make adaptive learning experiences for students."

How to become involved in Infiniscope

Educators who are interested in serving on the board next year first need to join the Infiniscope teaching network. Invitations to apply will be sent to teaching network members this winter with selections occurring in early 2021 for the 2021–22 academic year.    

The board is selected through a competitive process. Candidates are required to be educators and members of the Infiniscope teaching network. They also need to be dedicated to improving the quality of education products and willing to inspire their community to participate in the educational opportunities.
