Science City Saturday STEM Seminar: Who Wants to be an Astronaut?
October 6, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 amFree
During Saturday STEM Seminars at Science City, STEM professionals present highlights about their careers and hot topics in STEM, followed by a Q&A session. The sessions are geared for students in grades 7-12 and take place in the Extreme Screen at Union Station. No registration is required.
In October, the series heads to outer space: Curiosity and exploration lie at the heart of humankind’s quest to explore the cosmos but fewer than 600 humans have actually journeyed out of Earth’s atmosphere. This session will take a look at the journey of manned spaceflight and examine the rigorous training astronauts undergo in our quest to the moon, Mars and beyond with speaker Dr. Jason-Flor Sisante of University of Kansas Medical Center and NASA-JPL Solar System Ambassador.
