The LiftOff Summer Institute is a collaborative effort of Texas Space Grant Consortium members and affiliates, NASA, and industry.  Teachers apply for LiftOff and are selected competitively.  The workshops are organized around an aerospace or space science theme drawn from NASA’s diverse engineering and scientific research programs.  The theme for LiftOff 2009 is Celestial Travelers.  The program combines the strengths of collaborators to enrich teaching and learning of science, mathematics, technology and engineering.

The competitive weeklong institute features a series of workshops, hands-on activities, field trips, and featured presentations by NASA scientists working on various missions.

Ramirez has also recently received the 2009 Texas Medical Association Ernest and Sarah Butler Award for Excellence in Science Teaching. Only three Texas teachers were selected for this honor. She received a $5,000 prize for herself and $2,000 for her school’s science curriculum.
