Join Operation IceBridge Project Manager Christy Hansen on location near Antarctica as she discusses her career at NASA. Hansen, who began in NASA’s space flight program, recently joined the Operation IceBridge team. As Project Manager, she helps to organize daily operations and ensures that the team works together efficiently as they collect information about polar ice sheets. Christy Hansen will answer questions about her background and the work she does.
Prior to watching the video of the Hangout, learn about what Christy does through her blog post and her profile video, and find out more about Operation IceBridge. Have students think about what questions they would ask Christy if they were hanging out with her. Watch the video and see if she answers them. If not, have students use the internet for research and try to find the answers on NASA websites.
