The NISE Network runs a series of free online workshops to increase the number of professional development opportunities available to our partners, and create more channels for partners to share their work and learn from each other directly.

On February 18, 2021, after a seven-month journey, NASA’s Perseverance Rover will land on Mars and begin its mission to study Mars’ habitability. Jim Bell, a planetary scientist and author in the School of Earth and Space Exploration at Arizona State University, will speak about the science behind this mission and the Perseverance Rover and what it takes to land on Mars.
