The NASA Educator Professional Development Collaborative at
Texas State University is providing a 1-hour webinar.

We are going! To the Moon. For the first time in 21’st century. Humans will set foot on the moon again and explore like never before – live around the moon and explore for an extended duration of time. All of this is possible if we are able to carry heavy payloads from earth. Therefore, NASA is working on building a most powerful rocket ever called Space Launch System (SLS). SLS is a generation spacecraft that will also be able to carry humans into deeper space beyond the Moon. This webinar will help you bring SLS into your classrooms with an activity that engages students in modifying the design parameters or a rocket. It will also include an overview of the Artemis Program and related STEM Education resources. Join us for this free webinar!
