Astronaut Abby NASA Expert Virtual Visit: One Woman’s Journey To Become The First To Walk On Mars

I am excited to share that I served as a NASA Virtual Expert through their Digital Learning Network on Wednesday, April 19th. The Digital Learning Network hosts closed interactive video conferences with classrooms or live stream events where an expert on a subject topic is selected to talk to students and attendees about work and experiences in that particular area.

I presented on the topic of “One Woman’s Journey to Become the First to Walk on Mars!” The presentation was about my lifelong journey to become a scientist, astronaut and hopefully someday the first astronaut on Mars. I also talked about my work as an International Space and STEAM ambassador for The Mars Generation.

You can watch the video from my presentation below.
