Virtual:1. This live program begins with a brief introduction to the topic and scientist(s) being interviewed.2. We follow along as Dr. Ka Chun Yu, Curator of Space Science, takes us on a virtual journal through our solar system and beyond using high resolution space visuals.3. We conclude the program with time for students to ask questions on camera or in an open chat format (Zoom webinar)
Participants will: -Learn more about careers in the STEM/science world -Ask questions and engage with current scientists in real-time -Explore a new science content area (astronomy/space science) -Be empowered to see how STEM relates to their own lives; practice thinking critically about the Nature of Science (NOS) -See a broader representation for who can be a scientist (anyone and everyone!), dispelling inaccurate stereotypes about what a scientist "looks like"
