ODUOnline Plays Key Role in NASA Partnership

In 2019 ODUOnline, Old Dominion University's department for distance learning, was proud to be a part of the Virginia Space Grant Consortium's webinar series focusing on innovation in aviation with NASA. 

Each one-hour webinar featured NASA Aeronautics researchers. They spoke about the webinar subjects as well as their educational and career paths. Students were also able to interact with the presenters by submitting questions.

This series is offered as a partnership between NASA’s Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate and the National Space Grant Program and is produced by Old Dominion University.

The subjects streamed from ODUOnline's studio in 2019 were:

  • Quiet Supersonic Flight Over Land - Lowering the Boom,
  • Safe Flight for Drones - Designing a System for Urban Air Mobility,
  • and Electrified Aircraft - Tackling the Challenges of Alternative Propulsion.

The Virginia Space Grant Consortium (VSGC) is a coalition of five Virginia colleges and universities, NASA, state educational agencies, Virginia's Center for Innovative Technology, and other institutions representing diverse aerospace education and research. Read more about it here.
