Discover STEM in 30

STEM in 30 is an Emmy-nominated program for middle school students produced by the Smithsonian's National Air and Space Museum. New episodes are released every month, followed by a Mission Debrief where you and your students can tune in live and ask our experts your questions.

Latest Episode: Top of the Tower: How Air Traffic Control Keeps the Skies Safe

Join us September 12 at 12:45 pm for the Mission Debrief with Chris Browne, deputy director of the National Air and Space Museum. Before he joined the Museum, Chris was a naval flight officer and airport manager at two major DC-area airports, so he knows a thing or two about Air Traffic Control. He'll be on hand to answer all your questions.
