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

NASA is returning to the Moon with the Artemis Program. New and improved systems will allow astronauts to live and work on and around the Moon with the help of an orbiting outpost called the Gateway. Providing living conditions for astronauts around the Moon will necessitate many design imperatives – one of them being water filtration. This webinar will include a big-picture story of Artemis program, an exploration of water filtration on the Gateway, and a discussion on how to bring this topic to students using a simple hands-on activity and Culturally Responsive Teaching (CRT) strategies. Join us for this free 1-hr webinar!
