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!Download
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!Download
In preparation for celebrations and activities centered around the Apollo program and Moon landing, a webinar with Apollo NASA Engineer (for 54 years), Jerry Woodfill, was facilitated by Paige Graff from the Johnson Space Center by JSC Astromaterials in partnership with STAR Library Networks on July 9, 2019.
Feedback included: “This was a great program to help us with our work to excite people about space exploration. Thank you!"Download
