Welcome to Day in the Park

Please join the Katherine Johnson Independent Verification and Validation Facility's Education Resource Center for our second annual Digital Day in the Park! Attend our YouTube Livestream for three days of engaging STEM content, organized around NASA's missions. Meet some of the scientists, engineers, and innovators who live and work in West Virginia.

Day 1: Robots

Tuesday, October 12, 2021

Join us to learn about how NASA uses robots in its missions, what kind of robots are used in West Virginia, and how to get involved in competitive robotics at your school!

NASA's experimental planes have led the way for generations. Learn about new work on quieter sonic booms, as well as the engineering that goes into creating planes in West Virginia.

Sign our guest book! Letting us know how you used these Day in the Park resources (especially if you are a teacher viewing with your class) will help us make future Days in the Park even better!
