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 their students with the Artemis Program, NASA has developed curriculum modules on concepts related to Space Launch System (SLS), Orion, and The Gateway. This webinar will explore how to teach Science and Engineering Practices that also drive the Artemis Mission's orbiting lunar outpost - the Gateway.
