"I got a bee in my bonnet," said featured panelist Christina Korp, co-founder of The People's Moon, when she heard nurses are not allowed to go into space. Her solution? Get the conversation started, and we did! Thanks to Christina, the CCBN Space Talks were born! Hear how Christina is doing her part to get the first woman on the moon. Let's use what we discover to promote space for the next generation.
Join us and a panel of experts who have broken the glass ceiling in their own right on our mission to introduce students to space as a real possibility!
"The barriers that have been used to keep nurses out of the space program are the same barriers that are used to discourage youth from seeing themselves as an integral part of space reality – especially those in marginalized communities. CCBN Space Talks aims to change that!"
The fifth CCBN Space Talks session jettisons the mission to promote space for the next generation on Tuesday, July 27, 2021 from 5pm – 6:30pm MT. Stick around for a networking opportunity from 6:30 pm - 7:00 pm MT.
The CCBN Space Talks are a series of action oriented and solution-based conversations that will explore breaking barriers in space discovery for the next generation, and are hosted by the Colorado Council of Black Nurses Inc (CCBN) in a virtual environment.
Tuesday, July 27th is the fifth in a 6-talk series, taking place every last Tuesday of the month from March – August, culminating with the September launch of the Space Expo! A 5-day virtual assembly focusing on physical and applied sciences for preschool, elementary, middle and high school students, the Space Expo will start September 27, 2021 and culminate on October 1 – the 63rd anniversary of NASA’s opening!
CCBN’s Space Talks and Space Expo is one small step to encourage everyone, however able, to donate or influence the donation of resources so that children can be part of the giant leap for mankind and the greater good. Let’s promote space as a reality for the next generation.
