Scientists of tomorrow to advocate for a sensible approach to exploration | Clara Ma | TEDxYouth@KC
Published at : 14 Jan 2021
This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Why do we explore? Because it is our nature! Clara’s talk challenges us to see the deeper meaning and power that comes from exploration. NASA’s work extends beyond space exploration. Building the science of tomorrow begins with the curiosity of today.
A warm and enthusiastic young woman, Clara Ma is a summer intern at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, Calif. where she has worked on the ISAAC project and with the Mars Public Engagement team.
