March 2021 Ask an Engineer Webinar
Hosted on Thursday, March 18 at 8 PM Eastern
Our Ask an Engineer webinar series is your chance to ask some of the most fascinating people in the aerospace industry how your work in the American Rocketry Challenge will come in handy while building rockets that will carry the next astronauts to the Moon, Mars, and beyond!
In March 2021, Mike Fuller from Northrop Grumman joined us to discuss what it’s like to work on some of the world’s largest rockets, planning missions to Mars, and how you can do the same.
