Ways To Subscribe
Arkansas State University

This is A-State Connections on KASU. I’m Johnathan Reaves. This is the weekly segment called “A-State Connections and Create@State: Making Connections That Count”. Last week on the Create@State segment, we told you about the Arkansas Science Festival activities that are taking place in October. As part of the Arkansas Science Festival, the Arkansas State University Museum presents a special program next week called “Blast into STEM”. It will allow visitors to learn about space science and to connect them with current NASA research. I talked with curator of education at the ASU Museum Jill Kary about how the museum has been operating in this pandemic and asked her about the activities in this interview.

That is curator of education at Arkansas State University’s Museum Jill Kary. COVID-19 safety procedures implemented by ASU Museum have been made possible in part by a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) CARES: Cultural Organization program. The CARES (Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security) Act was passed by Congress to help offset the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Any views, findings, conclusions, or recommendations expressed during this week of space science activities do not necessarily represent those of the National Endowment for the Humanities.

To hear more interviews like this one, you can subscribe to the Create@State podcast on Apple Podcasts, Google Play, Spotify, iHeartRadio, or wherever you get your podcasts. Take KASU wherever you go and listen to podcast segments on the KASU app. Please tell others about the Create@State Podcast, also leave us a 5-star review on Apple podcasts. We would love to hear from you.
