NASA is landing humans on Mars in the late 2030's after training and learning around and on the Moon with the Artemis missions. That means that the foot that leaves the first footprint on Mars is currently attached to a student in a classroom somewhere in our country.

We're looking to you to help us find and prepare that foot for the amazing journey ahead with our many amazing resources. In this webinar we will discuss how to use our standards based activities and lessons to make the journey ahead relevant to your students and help them see their part in our collective future.

He currently holds a Master’s Degree in Infrastructure Planning and Management from the University of Washington, and a Bachelor’s Degree in Neuropsychology from Georgia College and State University. Steven is beginning work on his PhD in Biology in the Fall. The primary focus of his current work is in supporting Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs) in inspiring the next generation of NASA scientists from among historically disenfranchised groups. Steven helps to develop, package, and deliver STEM curriculum that translates the work and discoveries of NASA for use in the classroom and helps teachers to make it more accessible to all students. He is working with university pre-service educators, in-service, pre-service, and informal teachers to help them create culturally responsive lessons that will create engagement with students that have previously felt left out of the amazing work that NASA is doing. Steven worked in K-12 education for nearly 20 years, most recently as Life Sciences Chair at a minority serving inner city school in Georgia. He has taught Biology, Forensic Science, Anatomy and Physiology, Environmental Science, Earth and Space Science, and Physical science to special education, regular education, honors, and AP students in Georgia, Washington, and New Jersey.
