Ripken Playbook Live Joined by NASA Astronaut, Christina Koch

Aug 03, 2020

The Ripken Foundation’s latest Ripken Playbook Live virtual event featured NASA astronaut, Christina Koch. Of her many professional accomplishments, Koch holds the record for the longest single space flight by a woman, longest time in space by a woman, and was one of two astronauts to complete the first all-female spacewalk. Not only did Koch share stories and answer questions about her journeys in space with our youth, but as a female working in a STEM career, she encouraged her young audience to continue to pursue STEM education and showed them literally how the sky’s the limit! This Ripken Playbook Live event is part of the Foundation’s continuing initiative to adapt our in-person programming to engage and mentor our youth virtually during the COVID-19 pandemic.
