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

Join us to explore the X-57, NASA's all-electric x-plane. Learn about the aircraft and the systems needed for electric propulsion, NASA's design and testing processes, and the science behind the X-57. Wiring integration and coding will bring science to life in your classroom. Learn about current research going on at NASA Armstrong Flight Research Center with the X-57 program. Come celebrate NASA's first all-electric x-plane, the X-57. Leave with a classroom-ready PowerPoint that works great for an in-person, at home or virtual presentation. It includes embedded videos, links and aligns to the Next Generation Science Standards.

Discussion will include classroom modifications.
