Biographical Information:

Terri McManus, retired space and physical science educator, believes all students learn science best by doing science. Based upon this strong belief, Terri designs her presentations to be as student oriented as possible. She began space education outreach when selected as a Cassini Educator Fellow by Jet Propulsion Laboratory/NASA and later became a member of the JPL/NASA Solar System Educator Program.

Terri received the “Taking Up Space” Award and participated in the NASA Educational Workshop for Elementary School Teachers (NEWEST). An amateur astronomer with special interests in constellation myths and occultation timings, she published “Occultations and Small Bodies,” in the Occultation Newsletter. She was co-Secretary/Treasurer for the International Occultation Timing Association for 12 years.

Terri earned her BA from Colorado Women’s College, her teaching credentials from Michigan State University, and her MS in Space Studies from the University of North Dakota.
