David Lockett is a middle school STEM teacher, whose interest in STEM and astronomy started when he attended Fisk University. As a result of that interest, he founded a non-profit that focused on innovative methods to bring science, technology, engineering and math education to all students.
Over the past few years, he attended NASA Socials for the Orion First Flight Launch, the OLYMPEX campaign, and the New Horizons mission. His efforts integrating STEM and astronomy were recognized with a Congressional STEM proclamation.
During a recent visit to Chile as part of a teacher enrichment program, David received extensive training about the instruments, science, data products, and communicating concepts. His mission is to provide unique learning opportunities and assist students with developing an understanding our universe.
