No cost 1-hour webinar
The NASA Educator Professional Development Collaborative at
Texas State University is providing a 1-hour webinar.

Why sustainable aviation is important? NASA is looking beyond at what technologies will be needed for the long-term sustainability of aviation. Join us to explore how efficient aircraft technology, sustainable aviation fuel and operations and infraestructure are main ways to make aviation sustainable. Aviation needs to be sustainable so the environment can be protected, the economy can grow, and people can continue to connect in person quickly across long distances thanks to the marvel of air travel. In this webinar, we will talk about Aviation Pillars for a sustainable Future, how NASA has identified four priority subsonic transport technologies and how these will impact on the future sustainability of commercial aircraft fleet. We will explore the Sustainable Aviation NASA STEM Toolkit. Participants come away with instructional resources and NASA STEM information.
