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

A critical part of the Artemis Missions is bringing astronauts back home safely. On their return journey to the Earth, the space craft will have to withstand high temperatures, gravitational forces, and speed. To land safely the spacecraft will have to slow down significantly using parachutes. In this webinar, we will learn about safe landing and discuss how to present this aspect of the journey back from the Moon students using a simple hands-on activity. Also shared in this webinar is a big-picture story of the Artemis Missions and strategies to implement Culturally Responsive Teaching (CRT) practices, Join us for this free 1-hr webinar!

Core disciplinary ideas covered: Energy, Heridity (Life Science), Engineering Design, Earth and Space Sciences
