Have you ever wondered what it would be like to send a research investigation to the International Space Station (ISS)? Have you ever been curious about the steps to take to become part of the space station research community? Or, if you’re an educator, have you considered ways you could use the ISS to enhance science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education for your students? Do you know about the education programs currently available that use the ISS to engage the next generation of researchers and explorers?
If you answered yes to any of the questions above, then we have the perfect opportunity for you! Join representatives from NASA and the ISS U.S. National Laboratory at a virtual International Destination Station event on Wednesday, May 26 at 2 p.m. EDT.
During this event, you will learn what makes the ISS a one-of-a-kind research facility and what resources are available to researchers and educators. You will also hear from NASA astronaut Ricky Arnold about living and working in space and what it’s like to look down at the Earth from approximately 250 miles up. At the end of the general session, you will have the opportunity to join one of two breakout sessions:
- Taking STEM Education to a Higher Level: Hear from education leads at both NASA and the ISS National Lab about ways the space station is presently reaching millions of students around the world. Find out how to access education programs with exciting learning opportunities that can stimulate young explorers’ minds.
- How to Access the ISS Through the ISS National Lab: The ISS is a world-class research laboratory with the tools and facilities to conduct valuable R&D not possible on Earth. Learn more about the process to propose research and technology development projects to be performed on the space station.
Space is limited for this free virtual event, so we encourage you to register before all spots are filled! To view the full agenda and register, please visit the registration website.
We hope to see you at International Destination Station, where you can learn more about how the ISS enables research to advance scientific knowledge, demonstrate new technologies, and inspire the next generation!
