NASA’s Digital Learning Network Seeking High School Classes for Interactive Event About Game-Changing Technology
In 2013, life changed drastically for the families of 19 firefighters trapped in an Arizona wildfire. The fire shelters the firefighters were carrying were unable to protect them. That tragedy inspired scientists and engineers at NASA's Langley Research Center in Virginia to look at how technology developed for inflatable heat shields for spacecraft could be used to prevent this kind of tragedy from happening to others.
Join NASA’s Digital Learning Network for a special web conference on Oct. 19, 2016 at Noon EDT. During this event, students can learn personally from the scientists, engineers and representatives of the National Forestry Service about how they will use this technology to save lives. The DLN is currently accepting requests for high school classes to participate live during the webcast.
To be considered for this opportunity, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Use "CHIEFS Webcast" in the message’s Subject line and include the following information in the email message:
