The NASA STEM Educator Professional Development Collaborative (EDPC) is hosting a webinar that will feature and upcoming Orion flight test, mass properties, and give educators tools to further engage, excite, and teach K-12 students about the role of mass properties in mission success! Please share this event with educators and teachers you know that would enjoy this opportunity!
Synopsis: Explore Moon to Mars: Orion’s Ascent Abort-2 Flight Test
This summer, NASA plans to conduct the Ascent Abort-2 (AA-2) flight test. This milestone event will verify flight capabilities of Orion’s Launch Abort System (LAS), a key step in fulfilling NASA’s mission to go back to the Moon and then on to Mars. During this free 60-minute webinar, educators will have a chance to hear from anOrion flight test engineer about AA-2 and the critical role mass properties plays in spacecraft design. This webinar will also highlight NASA resources and hands-on activities for engaging your students with Orion and AA-2 (webinar addresses NGSS PS1, PS2 & ETS1).
