NASA and Northrop Grumman (NYSE:NOC) are set to co-sponsor a community event featuring Nobel Prize-winning physicist Dr. John Mather, NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope Senior Project Scientist.
Mather will speak at Da Vinci Schools in Hawthorne, Calif., Thursday, April 15 at 6:45 p.m.
“Exposing these students to scientists designing the world’s largest space telescope is critical to giving them a real-world view of a career in math and science, ” said David DiCarlo, vice president and general manager of Space Systems for Northrop Grumman Aerospace Systems sector. “This is a way to bring world-leading science to the entire community and is an important aspect of our partnership with Da Vinci. We’ll also continue to offer Northrop Grumman engineers and scientists to serve as ongoing mentors and subject matter experts for students.”
