This month's featured panelist is Anastacia Cox LPN, the creator of the CCBN Space Expo. Recognizing the value of parent support in youth pursuing their space dreams, Anastacia's desire to empower parents to get involved has sparked a global initiative. Hear Anastacia's story and then join our parent-child panel moderated by Emmy winning journalist Lori Lizarraga. Let's use what we discover to promote space for the next generation.
Join us as students, parents, aerospace and health care representatives weigh in 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 sixth CCBN Space Talks session brings it all home in preparation of a safe landing at the September CCBN Space Expo, finalizing the mission to promote space for the next generation on Tuesday, August 31, 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, August 31th is the sixth 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.
