Live Webcast: The Many Ways You Can Participate in Space Exploration
Join the Challenger Center and Angela Peura for a live webcast to discuss careers in space exploration and space policy. The webcast will be held on Wednesday, August 18th at 1:00pm EDT. The webcast is free and open to the public and can be viewed at http://webcasts.challenger.org.
Let’s say that you love space, but space technology is not where your talents lie. Does that mean you can’t participate in the adventure? Not at all. In this webcast we’ll discuss multiple possibilities for careers related to space exploration. We will look at questions such as what space policy is, why we go to space, what “the future” will be like, and how individuals can contribute.
Angela Peura is currently a space policy consultant in Washington, DC. She has worked in the fields of space science education – as a Space Camp Counselor and Challenger Learning Center Flight Director – and archaeology. She recently graduated from George Washington University’s International Science and Technology Policy Masters degree program. She hopes to meld her life-long interest in space with her international experience to foster international collaboration and guide human endeavors in space in a peaceful and mutually beneficial manner.
We hope that you can join us for this webcast. Challenger Center for Space Science Education hosts many live interactive webcasts for teachers and students throughout the year.
