Lockheed Martin Lucy Launch STEM Event
Lucy is a first-of-its-kind mission for NASA that will explore Jupiter’s elusive Trojan asteroids. The spacecraft will endeavor to uncover new knowledge about the origins of our solar system and planets. It will do this by studying the geology, surface composition and physical properties of the primitive Trojan asteroids, otherwise known as the “fossils” of the solar system.
Set to launch in October, Lucy is a 12-year-long mission which means the next scientists and engineers who work on Lucy could be in school today! Made in Littleton, CO, Lucy is a collaborative effort between NASA Goddard, Lockheed Martin and the Southwest Research Institute.
Join us for a VIRTUAL Badge-in-a-Day event celebrating Lucy’s launch on Wednesday, Oct. 27, from 6 – 8 p.m. The event will feature a keynote speech from Southwest Research Institute, a STEM activity and a career panel with Lockheed Martin’s High School Intern Recruiter. Girl Scouts will complete requirements for the Cadette Space Science Researcher, Senior Space Science Expert, and Ambassador Space Science Master badges.

A zoom link will be sent to registered Girl Scouts a few days prior to October 27.
