Dr. Aomawa Shields, Life On Other Planets

Aomawa Shields is a woman of “contradictions.” An astronomer and astrobiologist, she searches for exoplanets where life might exist by using computer models to calculate the kind of atmosphere they’d need to support it. And she’s also a classically trained actor who — through her organization Rising Stargirls — teaches astronomy to middle school girls of color using theater, writing, and visual art to spark their imaginations. We invite you to be a part of this stunning and inspiring talk.
