Chancellor’s Distinguished Speaker Series - Yonatan Winetraub
With SpaceIL co-founder Yonatan Winetraub.
SpaceIL is known for competing in the Google Lunar X Prize contest to land a robot on the moon through entrepreneurship, creativity and public-private collaborations. Its Beresheet lander was the first Israeli spacecraft to travel beyond Earth’s orbit.
A key goal of this mission was to inspire the next generation of space researchers and promote STEM education and scientific exploration. Yonatan will share insights from the experience and discuss how it has helped engage students in STEM.
