Education and Outreach

virtual-tour_flyer-image Students have the opportunity to get a glimpse of the robotic technologies and demonstrations conducted at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center without leaving the classroom.

Interactive Virtual Tour of NASA Robotics Facility

Using video-sharing technology, students can take a virtual tour of the Goddard Satellite Servicing Center at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center. With one of Goddard's top engineers transported to their classroom, students are able to actively discuss NASA's latest technologies and how they could one day join the efforts to impact our nation's exploration and use of space.

This program is available to schools across the nation! All that is needed in the classroom is a projector connected to a computer, a webcam, microphone, and the ability to share video (through platforms such as Skype or Google+).

SSPD Exhibits for STEM Nights and Other Events

The Satellite Servicing Projects Division is also available for STEM Nights and other exhibit opportunities for students in the greater DC/Baltimore metropolitan area.

Interactive activities, sample hardware, videos, posters, and handouts on Robotic Refueling Mission and satellite servicing technology development can be presented by SSPD engineers and team members, engaging students of all ages.
