On December 4, 2019, Astromaterials Research and Exploration Science (ARES) team member Ben Feist shared his experience bringing together audio, transcripts, video, and imagery to create the Apollo in Real Time website.  The site enables users to experience Apollo missions as they occurred ~50 years ago.

~500 live participants and ~200 archive participants were involved in the event.  Participants were from 19 different states and Mexico and included students in grades 2 - 12.

Feedback: "This was great to inspire students to consider various careers that they can go into all under the heading of NASA."
