How Space Exploration Benefits Society, Spring Workshop

Course Description:
Did you know that the case protecting your phone may have been made using NASA developed material? That the bubbles in your brew could be from technology originally designed for use on Mars?  Aerospace organizations like NASA are on the front lines of technological, scientific, and industrial innovation, and perhaps without even knowing it we see evidence of their work every day.  From imaging technology that helps firefighters coordinate wildfire efforts to the GPS we use to navigate through busy city streets, the benefits of space exploration research are everywhere.  We even have the ability to recycle thousands of tons of plastic waste into usable fuel.  This class will cover the space industry's current and future missions, what those missions mean for the rest of us, and why Space Exploration Research is more relevant than ever.

As NASA prepares for the retirement of International Space State, and commercial businesses make ready to take over low earth orbit, the space industry is on the cusp paradigm shift that could change the world as profoundly as when we succeeded in sending human beings into space for the first time.

Communities for Science - Round Table Discussion

Love Science? Get Involved!
Are you fascinated or intrigued with the world of space exploration, science, math, or engineering? Are you interested in STEM/STEAM based community outreach? Whether you are an expert in one of the STEM fields, or an enthusiast wanting to learn more - we are looking for people to join our project to cultivate social and community spaces for scientific discussions.

If you...
...are fascinated with science but don't have easy access to a classroom or expert able to explain concepts in plain language
...have ever tried to explain a scientific concept to an uninterested or dubious friend or family member
...want to connect with people who share your passion for science and community
Please join us Sunday, July 9th at 2:30pm in the Central Santa Rosa Library Forum Room. Participation in the discussion is not required, but we encourage you to share your stories, experiences, and ideas as we search for creative solutions to engage the community in promoting understanding of the rigor and relevancy of scientific inquiry.
