Join us for the NASA TechRise Virtual Field Trip! This FREE event is designed to inspire sixth to 12th grade students about space exploration and to enter the NASA TechRise Student Challenge. Students can join for any portion of the four-hour virtual event. Be sure to check out the speaker schedule below and plan your virtual visit.
The event will include a live main stage featuring NASA astronaut Reid Wiseman, Dr. Raven the Science Maven, and two panels with NASA experts. Students can also visit the virtual expo hall to view demonstrations of sample NASA TechRise experiment ideas, learn about suborbital rockets and high-altitude balloons, and visit virtual booths with flight provider representatives from Blue Origin, Raven Aerostar, and UP Aerospace.
Thinking about student privacy? We like the way you think! Registration is required. Students will NOT go on camera or share audio and there will NOT be a public chat. However, the field trip will be interactive! Students will be able to submit questions directly to speakers/hosts, so come prepared with questions. Your students' questions may be answered live on the virtual stage! All attendees must RSVP to attend. Already have a Future Engineers account? Click login to RSVP. New to Future Engineers? Click login to RSVP above and then “Create a New Account” to register and RSVP. You can find additional registration instructions here.
Wondering if you can attend if you're not 6th - 12th grade? While this field trip is meant for students eligible for the NASA TechRise Student challenge, anyone with a Future Engineers account may RSVP and join.
We recommend that students individually RSVP to experience the event as a self-guided educational event, but educators are also welcome to display the virtual field trip to their entire class.
