WMFE and Orlando Science Center will host a STEAM-focused event on July 28th featuring veteran NASA astronaut Nicole Stott and WMFE’s own space reporter, Brendan Byrne.

The event will feature a Q&A session and meet-and-greet with Stott that looks at her journey as an astronaut and her fusion of art and space exploration and how it has inspired her outreach work now that she’s back on Earth.

“We are thrilled to bring Nicole Stott to our community and offer this exceptional opportunity for both adults and children to be inspired by her incredible journey,” said Brendan Byrne, host of WMFE’s “Are We There Yet?”. “Nicole’s unique perspective as an astronaut and artist connects science and art.”

This event will take place on July 28 at 7 p.m. in the Digital Adventure Theater on level two of the Orlando Science Center and is free to attend, but guests are required to register. Click HERE to register.

A family-friendly event is scheduled for 3 p.m. that same day at the Grand Avene Neighborhood Center in Holden Heights that will allow kids a chance to explore the idea of spaceflight through art and the artwork created at the workshop will be displayed on a future NASA spacesuit.

Both events are funded in part by a grant from United Arts of Central Florida.
