The NASA STEM EPDC at Texas State University is providing a free 1-hour webinar.

NASA is expanding human exploration by visiting the Moon and then Mars. The new Lunar Exploration program that will land the first woman and the next man on the surface of the moon is called the Artemis Program. To enable educators to engage students with Artemis Program, NASA has developed curriculum modules on Propulsion with SLS, Crew Transportation with Orion, and Habitation with Gateway. This webinar will explore Habitation with Gateway and provide a quick walkthrough of a digital Educator Badge (micro-credential) that provides an in-depth exploration of all the curriculum modules. Please join us for this free 1-hr webinar!
