Video Highlights – SSEP Research Teams, 2011 SSEP National Conference, Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum

Ladies and Gentleman-

We would like to introduce the Principal Investigators, Co-Principal Investigators, and Collaborators of three SSEP on STS-134 research teams presenting details of their microgravity experiments at the 2011 SSEP National Conference, Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum (NASM). I think the videos speak for themselves.

You can read about the conference at the 2011 SSEP National Conference page.

We would like to extend a very special thank you to Team NASM – Michael Hulslander, Manager of Onsite Learning, and Paul Griffin, for taping the conference, doing such a stunning job of post production work, and uploading the complete video library of the Conference to the Museum’s Air&Space YouTube Channel to serve as a SSEP formal archive. We are proud that the National Air and Space Museum—the most visited Museum on the planet—is a National Partner on the Student Spaceflight Experiments Program.

Finally a special thank you to all the partner organizations for making this remarkable set of experiences possible for our next generation of scientists and engineers.

Here are the first 3 videos of research team presentations to serve as a Conference showcase, together with a video of the poster session for the visiting public. Stay tuned for additional blog posts showcasing the 2011 SSEP National Conference.

The Student Spaceflight Experiments Program (SSEP) is a program of the National Center for Earth and Space Science Education (NCESSE) in the U.S., and the Arthur C. Clarke Institute for Space Education internationally. It is enabled through a strategic partnership with DreamUp PBC and NanoRacks LLC, which are working with NASA under a Space Act Agreement as part of the utilization of the International Space Station as a National Laboratory. SSEP is the first pre-college STEM education program that is both a U.S. national initiative and implemented as an on-orbit commercial space venture.
