In April, over 1600 Students from 30 states and Mexico were able to interact and hear from a NASA Scientist, Dr. Doug Ming,  about the latest Mars rover activities, what the scientist teams are learning from these activities, and some of the challenges humans will face if we plan to live and work on Mars.

Conducted at NASA Johnson Space Center, NASA Astromaterial Webinars connect NASA scientists with learners from all backgrounds in formal and informal settings to provide the spark to investigate future STEM careers, to become knowledgeable and share NASA science, or get involved in citizen science projects.
