Upcoming Workshop:

For tomorrow’s EPSS Workshop Wednesdays professional development series (see attached calendar), we will have 4 EPSS alums who are now in different roles in the space industry, from aerospace, PhD research, data analysis and modeling, to outreach education. They will talk about their career trajectories and share some advice, followed by audience Q&A. The event will be hybrid on Zoom as two of the speakers cannot attend in person. Come ready with questions!

Location: Slichter Hall 3853, Wednesday April 26th 5-6pm
