FREE 1-hour Webinar

NASA sent 8 missions to the Moon. 12 people have walked on its surface. We are returning, but this time will be very different. Our how is different. Our why is different. And, our who is different. A brilliantly representative group of 18 astronauts will be using the Space Launch System to ride the Orion Capsule to the Moon.

This webinar will look at the similarities and differences between Artemis and Apollo. We will talk about the who, and why that's important. We will also look at the why, and how that affects you and your students. We'll look at hands-on activities to pull your students into the story and discuss your part in our journey ahead.

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.
