Sky's No Limit: Propelling Students into STEM
This panel will discuss space-based research opportunities in suborbital and low-Earth orbit, using the mystique of space to engage the next generation of innovators and explorers. Realizing the visions expressed by industry leaders to live and thrive outside Earth requires a workforce that can turn such aspirations into tangible results. An astronaut, a student researcher, and an aerospace engineer will discuss how to inspire students to choose STEM classes, projects and ultimately careers.
