Mining: From Missouri to the moon

Virtual Event Monday, February 22, 2021 at 2:00pm to 3:00pm

A look at how Missouri S&T prepared miners over the past 150 years and how it is now preparing engineers for a future in space mining. 

This talk will be presented by Larry Gragg, Curator's Distinguished Teaching Professor emeritus of history and political science at S&T, Leslie Gertsch, associate professor of geological engineering at S&T and Alana Krolikowski, assistant professor of history and political science at S&T.
