Georgia Tech senior Breanna Ivey tested out the math that helps the rover move during an internship last year.</p> <p>&ldquo;It will be exciting anyway, if I didn&rsquo;t have a role in it, but it&rsquo;s even more exciting to know that I touched something that is going to land on Mars and be the first step in a mission to actually bring samples back,&rdquo; Ivey said. From Macon, GA, Ivey has been a recipient of the Dixie Crow Education Foundation STEM Scholarship the last four years while attending Georgia Tech in Atlanta, GA.</p></p> 3/1/2021 1:29:42 PM https://www.wsbtv.com/news/local/georgia-college-student-played-important-role-todays-nasa-mars-mission/CEWAPDYH4RGHHLS3666H22G47A/ AOC Discussions | EMSO Leadership with Air Chief Marshal Sir Stuart Peach https://www.crows.org/general/custom.asp?page=Discussions <p><strong style="font-size:10px;"><a href=https://www.ecrow.org/newsletter-v7.asp?issueID=76606>March 3, 2021</a> -- <em>Calendar</em></strong><br />11:30 AM - 12:30 PM ET</p> 3/1/2021 1:29:43 PM https://www.crows.org/general/custom.asp?page=Discussions Virtual Series Webinar: Cyber Electromagnetic Activities and Signals Intelligence: A Command and Control Framework https://www.crows.org/page/CEMAandSIGINT <p><strong style="font-size:10px;"><a href=https://www.ecrow.org/newsletter-v7.asp?issueID=76606>March 3, 2021</a> -- <em>Calendar</em></strong><br />2:00 - 3:00 PM ET</p> 3/1/2021 1:29:43 PM https://www.crows.org/page/CEMAandSIGINT Virtual Series Webinar: The Year in Review - GPS/PNT Disruptions and Improvements https://www.crows.org/page/GPSandPNT <p><strong style="font-size:10px;"><a href=https://www.ecrow.org/newsletter-v7.asp?issueID=76606>March 3, 2021</a> -- <em>Calendar</em></strong><br />2:00 - 3:00 PM ET</p> 3/1/2021 1:29:43 PM https://www.crows.org/page/GPSandPNT Virtual Series Live Course: RF Theory for ES Operations https://www.crows.org/page/RFTheoryforESOperations <p><strong style="font-size:10px;"><a href=https://www.ecrow.org/newsletter-v7.asp?issueID=76606>March 3, 2021</a> -- <em>Calendar</em></strong><br />March 22-26 (Monday, Wednesday & Friday) 1:00 - 4:00 PM ET</p> 3/1/2021 1:29:43 PM https://www.crows.org/page/RFTheoryforESOperations Program Manager Briefing Series: COL Michael L.
