On January 28, 2020, Astromaterials Research and Exploration Science (ARES) meteorite processor, Curtis Calva, shared an overview of the work he does in NASA's Antarctic Meteorite Curation Laboratory. The event reached ~317 live participants and 400+ archived participants across 17 states and Mexico. Participants include classroom students and educators ranging from grades 3-12, in addition to a number of Solar System Ambassadors.

Feedback: "I liked hearing Curtis' story about what he studied, his field work, and how he came to his current position at NASA."
