Turning Reds Into Blues: JUNTOS!
Thanks to Dr. Jay Famiglietti and Paola Wong, we think that students can turn the reds into blues.
We're talking about CubeSats to collect data for water availability, student solutions, mentorship from caring professionals, and a national movement in learning from Peru that will inspire the world.
We hope our upcoming collaboration "CubeSats in Peru" will bring scientists together to inspire and inform student teams from Peru. ALL HANDS ON DECK! It's going to take everyone to solve the world's big problems.
Much thanks to Dr. Famiglietti for inspiring students and teachers getting ready for CubeSats in Peru. Dr. Jay Famiglietti - Executive Director, Global Institute for Water Security, University of Saskatchewan; Previously NASA JPL Senior Water Scientist, Waterplan Chief Scientist
Dr. Famiglietti presented some AMAZING research that could connect CubeSats in Peru to The Globe Program, and issues directly impacting Peru.
We learned what this means to Peru, and how this collaboration will serve three goals:
Build STEM Capacity in the Educational System in Peru
Promote Space Technology Application
INSPIRE Peruvian Communities, Schools, Cities, and Families
