Washington NASA Space Grant Consortium cordially invites you to our showcase of student work from academic year 2021–2022. This year, we’re thrilled to present both our students’ work as posters and presentations and an exciting showcase of teams running the Artemis Lunar Lava Tube Exploration Challenge (LLTEC)!

The events

Posters & presentations

The poster session will be in the traditional format, with displays of printed research posters and students on-site to discuss their work. Presentations will be delivered both in-person as well as virtually with students Zoom-ing from around the state.

Artemis LLTEC teams

The Lunar Lava Tube Exploration Challenge is one of NASA’s Artemis Challenges. The question posed is: “How would YOU go about exploring the moon’s lava tubes in order to turn them into crew habitats?” Student teams will face the challenge course — a model of a lava tube — to see how their robotic rover and programmatic solutions fare in exploring this lunar environment.

COVID Precautions

WSGC takes COVID precautions and accessibility seriously.  The poster session will be in a large room to avoid crowding.  We highly recommend attendees rapid test the day of the event and wear a high quality mask during the event.  KN95 masks will be provided on site.  Any individual with a COVID exposure or symptoms should not attend in person.  There is a scheduled break at 11:30 to allow for attendees to take a break and grab a snack or lunch away from the event space.  If any further accommodations would assist you or someone else in engaging fully, please do not hesitate to send us a message at nasa@uw.edu.
