Aerospace is committed to inspiring the next generation. Since 2013, we have supported K-12 education by hosting educational programs for teachers and high school students. Free of charge, these events expose participants to the research, state-of-the art facilities, and 21st century skills needed to succeed in the STEM fields and provide real-world examples of problems and solutions.
The safety of our program participants, staff, and their families is our highest priority. All Aerospace STEM programs are virtual until further notice.

Asteroid Deflection Team App — Saturday, January 9, 2021, 9:00 am – 11:00 am PST
The Asteroid Deflection App, created by Aerospace in partnership with NASA/JPL, is a science-based tool that aims at using physics and orbital mechanics to model an approaching asteroid that can be deflected using multiple parameters. The app can host diverse teams that can engage in different scenarios and friendly competition to save Earth from an impending impact. As they work together, they communicate and simulate possible solutions. Try this app with your high school class and give your students the opportunity to save the world! Free resources provided at the conclusion of the program.
Workshop Level: High School
