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

As part of the Artemis missions, NASA plans to land the first woman and the first person of color on the Moon, using innovative technologies to explore more of the lunar surface than ever before. Using what we learn from living on and around the Moon will help us take the next giant leap—sending astronauts to Mars. This webinar will explore aspects of landing humans on the moon and related hands-on activities on choosing landing site, geology of the moon, and biological needs of astronauts. It will also include a big-picture story of Artemis program and a discussion of Culturally Responsive Teaching (CRT) strategies. Join us for this free webinar!
