Today, the delegates finished up their last directed study block. The morning lecture, “Getting ready to be “The Martian”: A One-Year Expedition on the International Space Station” was given by Dr. Julie Robinson (Chief Scientist, International Space Station, NASA). Dr. Robinson highlighted some of the most dramatic discoveries and benefits of the ISS, and how challenging the unknown keeps scientists and engineers on the cutting edge of discovery.
In the afternoon, delegates had the opportunity to participate in seminars from Creek Sampling with Rachel to How to Make a Campfire with Gavin. Afterward, the delegates selected their last overnight trips in the outdoor lottery.
More posts to come July 1st – going on overnight trips again tomorrow!
