Happy Oktoberfest! Prost!

Eek! So excited to share that you can find me on this Friday's @picklerandben episode! #picklerandben

Before and after science. (Swipe πŸ‘‰πŸΌ) πŸš€

Newton's 3rd law in SloMo with the incredible @stevespangler πŸš€πŸš€πŸš€

Two new incredible stickers to add to my laptop from @twophoton! #ScienceIsPolitical #ScienceIsForEveryone. Thanks @christineliuart for these! Check out @twophoton for more amazing Science Art πŸš€πŸš€πŸš€πŸŽ¨

Appeared on my very first day time talk show today!! Thanks to @kelliepickler and @benaarontv for having me on to talk about science and space! πŸš€ I'll let you know when you can watch! πŸ™‚πŸ“Ί#picklerandben

ANNOUNCEMENT!! Today is the day that the 4th Ada Lace Adventure arrives in the world! (Link in bio) πŸ“š

Thanks to all of you who have supported the creation of STEM stories for kids (through a book that just happens to have a girl leading the adventures). πŸ“š

@tamsonbooks and I would love to make more of these. How can you help with us do that? Share these books with kids ages 6-10, write Amazon reviews for them, and continue to share stuff like this on social. πŸ“š

I can't believe Ada already has 4 adventures out in the world. Let's keep going! #AdaLace #kidlit #science #sciencebooksforkids #stem #stemlit #steam #steameducation #stemeducation

Traveling this labor day weekend but with my Mounties in spirit today. #GoMountaineers! #GoEers πŸ’™πŸ’›πŸˆ

The look of someone who had a successful trip to Home Depot and learned how to make her own dry ice bubbles. πŸ’ͺ🏼 See stories for experiment πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸ”¬

Hanging out with my amazing friend @natalya926, founder and CEO of Accion SystemsπŸš€

Accion Systems builds mini ion thrusters for small satellites. See those chips I'm holding? Those are ROCKET THRUSTERS πŸ˜²πŸš€ SwipeπŸ‘‰πŸΌ the original model has 4 chips with 480 emitters on each chip that will emit ions, providing thrust for small sats πŸ›°οΈ. But these chips can be scaled for larger satellites (see last picture!) Why are thrusters for small satellites important?
1️⃣Well for one, they've never been able to have them before. Traditional engines were too large. Now they can!

2️⃣With thrusters, small sats can stay in orbit Longer (think years instead of months)

3️⃣With thrusters, πŸ›°οΈ's can move out of the way of space debris.

4️⃣With thrusters, πŸ›°οΈ's can maneuver to more optimal orbits. πŸš€ In short, Natalya and her team at Accion are revolutionizing the small sat industry. πŸ›°οΈπŸ›°οΈπŸ›°οΈ Fun fact - Natalya and I were roomies at MIT πŸ‘― @mitpics
