Summary:"Most people know that astronauts use technical skills during their missions, but do your students know astronauts also rely on """"expeditionary skills"""" such as cultural competency, self care/team care, teamwork, leadership/followership, and communication? Expeditionary Skills for Life, a website created by NASA and the USDA's 4-H Youth Development Program for K-12 audiences, provides lessons and videos built around expeditionary skills and the training astronauts receive for long-duration space expedition. Currently, teachers can access materials exploring cultural competency, or a person's ability to learn from perspectives differing from their own. Content relating to other expeditionary skills will be added soon. Watch a video featuring astronaut and 4-H alum Peggy Whitson discussing the website and how it can help students learn and practice skills to apply to STEM studies and future careers."
