As part of the Artemis missions, NASA plans to land the first woman and the first person of color on the Moon, using innovative technologies to explore more of the lunar surface than ever before.

In this session we will explore NASA's Artemis Missions to the Moon and Mars and learn about Human Landing Systems designed to deliver humans to the surface of the Moon and return them safely back to lunar orbit. Come and join this online professional development session as we explore "Landing Humans on the Moon" and discover hands-on/minds-on NASA STEM resources for students to really engage them.

Attendees come away with instructional PowerPoint, videos, and links to even more standards aligned resources ready to use in the classroom or at home.
