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.
Online Workshop: The Science behind the 2020 Explore Science: Earth and Space Toolkit B – Surviving in Space
As NASA plans its return to the Moon and further human exploration into the solar system, how will astronauts be protected from the hazards of space? This online workshop covers the science behind the Moon Adventure Game and several of the 2020 Explore Science: Earth & Space Toolkit B activities. After a brief overview of how this toolkit focuses on the moon, our guest presenters, Christina Lim and Jessica Lee from NASA Ames Research Center, will step us through how astronauts will survive in space long-term—followed by Q&A. Katherine Kornei and Darrell Porcello from the NISE Network will finish the workshop with a review of included toolkit materials for the game and activities that will help facilitators make additional NASA content connections with visitors.
