Virtual Learning Experience with African American Scientists
The Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC) and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) invite middle school and high school students to join A Space for Us All, a virtual educational experience examining and building on the legacy of achievement, connection, and knowledge of African Americans at NASA.
Astronaut Victor Glover will share his experiences and ideas about the future of space travel. He will be joined by NASA Directors Clayton Turner and Vanessa Wyche, as they describe the needed skills of the future workforce at NASA.
This program will be broadcast virtually on NMAAHC’s UStream and NASA TV channels on Friday, February 10, 2023. Students are invited to submit questions for the speakers by February 3, 2023, at 11:59 p.m. (ET).
Better Health in Action: From Classroom to Community is an initiative of global biopharmaceutical company Takeda and edtech company Discovery Education. The two companies have partnered to offer health equity and STEM education topics to students, educators, and families in grades 6–8, free of charge.
Students in grades 4 and above can go on a behind-the-scenes virtual tour from NASA’s Johnson Space Center and explore the Callisto technology experiment that is heading to the Moon during the Artemis mission.
