Engineering is everywhere! Engineering will also drive NASA’s mission to the Moon. Join the NASA STEM Engagement & Educator Professional Development Collaborative at Texas State University for a free 60-minute webinar to learn as we explore engineering design activities for students based on NASA’s real-world engineering design considerations involved in lunar exploration with the Artemis Missions. The webinar will also explore pedagogical and practical aspects of implementing hands-on activities in formal and informal education settings and engaging students of diverse backgrounds. The webinar will take place on Oct. 20 at 6 p.m. EST. Register online to participate.
We are on the cusp of our next giant leap. Artemis I is ready to go. Our Orion spacecraft is launching on the only exploration class vehicle capable of sending humans on this journey. The human analog, Campos, will journey to the Moon and far beyond as he gathers information that will set the stage for the first humans to visit up close since 1972. Join the NASA STEM Engagement & Educator Professional Development Collaborative at Texas State University for a free 60-minute webinar as we discuss why we are returning, how this time is different, and how can you and your students get involved. The webinar will take place on Oct. 27 at 6 p.m. EST. Register online to participate.
WHERE WOULD WE BE WITHOUT OUR MOON Free Monthly Lecture Series -virtual- Hans-Peter Plag & Peter Eudenbach What would Earth be like if there was no moon? What would be different in Earth's physics, chemistry and biology without our Moon? Most importantly, would our lives be different on Earth without the Moon? What is it we would not have in History, Science, Art, Culture if the Moon would not exist and revolve around Earth? Join us for an illustrated lecture that ponders these what-ifs and more with Hans-Peter Plag Professor, Ocean, Earth and Atmospheric Sciences, Director, Mitigation and Adaptation Research Institute (MARI) & Peter Eudenbach, ODU Arts Chair. Brought to you in partnership with the ODU Office of Community Engagement, the Office of Distance Learning, and Remote Experience for Young Engineers and Scientists (REYES).
On Passing Time and Rising Tides: Voices of Resilience in Tidewater and Beyond When we look at flooding from a scientific perspective, we tend to lose the real and devastating impact that increasing tidal flooding, storm surges, and sea-level rise have on people, families, and communities. Yet the voices of the affected are often not included in the conversation on resilience. This panel discussion invites you to join a conversation with some of the voices of resilience, and explore what flooding means in Tidewater Virginia through art, history, and experience. Brought to you in partnership with the ODU Office of Community Engagement, the Office of Distance Learning, and Remote Experience for Young Engineers and Scientists (REYES).
