In partnership with the Texas Space Grant Consortium, NASA Astromaterials Subject Matter Experts at Johnson Space Center shared NASA science and exploration with the ~65 SEES high school intern participants. This included sharing a variety of Astromaterials samples, the Apollo lunar laboratory, the Space Vehicle Mockup Facility and more!

The ISS Imagery & Moon SEES teams were toured around by their Astromaterials scientist mentors!

NASA Astromaterials staff was one of many exhibitors participating in the event. We shared information about meteorites from the Moon and Mars, Apollo Moon rocks, and enabled the public to experience collecting 3D printed samples of Moon rocks with Apollo replica tools off of a printed LRO map of the Moon.

More than 3000 people stayed for 10-30 minutes interacting with our subject matter experts!

On Saturday, July 20, 2019 at Monroe Community College , 9 teams of 45 students from grades 5 through 12 participated in Apollo Next Giant Leap Student Challenge (ANGLeS) celebrating the Apollo 11 landing on the moon. The winning team, Crypto Cyborgs, is going to NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston.

The teams had to do the following tasks for the competition: build a replica of the lunar module; program a Lego robot to act as a rover; use a remote-controlled drone to land the 8- by- 10-...

Do you live in an area that has dust storms? The Global Learning and Observations to Benefit the Environment Program (GLOBE) team would like you to photograph dust events in your area and submit your photos using the GLOBE Observer app. Join NASA GLOBE Clouds Project Scientist, Marilé Colón Robles, to learn more about how to collect your observations and educational resources you can use with formal and informal audiences. Your observations will be used by scientists to verify satellite observations and see if their models have successfully predicted these dust storms and help scientists alert communities to better prepare for the harmful impacts of these storms.
