We are on the cusp of our next giant leap. Artemis I is ready to go. Our Orion spacecraft is launching on the only exploration class vehicle capable of sending humans on this journey. The human analog, Campos, will journey to the Moon and far beyond as he gathers information that will set the stage for the first humans to visit up close since 1972. In this webinar we will discuss why we are returning, how this time is different, and how can you and your students get involved.

He currently holds a Master’s Degree in Infrastructure Planning and Management from the University of Washington, and a Bachelor’s Degree in Neuropsychology from Georgia College and State University. Steven is beginning work on his PhD in Biology in the Fall. The primary focus of his current work is in supporting Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs) in inspiring the next generation of NASA scientists from among historically disenfranchised groups. Steven helps to develop, package, and deliver STEM curriculum that translates the work and discoveries of NASA for use in the classroom and helps teachers to make it more accessible to all students. He is working with university pre-service educators, in-service, pre-service, and informal teachers to help them create culturally responsive lessons that will create engagement with students that have previously felt left out of the amazing work that NASA is doing. Steven worked in K-12 education for nearly 20 years, most recently as Life Sciences Chair at a minority serving inner city school in Georgia. He has taught Biology, Forensic Science, Anatomy and Physiology, Environmental Science, Earth and Space Science, and Physical science to special education, regular education, honors, and AP students in Georgia, Washington, and New Jersey.
