UL Lafayette education major stars in Space Camp documentary 'The Mars Generation'

By UL Lafayette Office of Communications and Marketing

Victoria Harrelson will spend the summer at a familiar hangout, the U.S. Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville, Alabama.

Harrelson, a junior from Lafayette majoring in elementary education, will work as a counselor at the rocket center’s Space Camp from mid-May to mid-August.

The educational camp is where in summers past she fell in love with space exploration, landed a significant role in the Emmy-nominated documentary “The Mars Generation,” and figured out she wanted to be a teacher.

The U.S. Space and Rocket Center, which is operated by the state of Alabama, sits near NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center. The rocket center was launched in 1970 to showcase the country’s space program, and offers educational camps for children and adults throughout the year. Its summer Space Camp for children is designed to engage them in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics, or STEM, activities.

Harrelson’s duties as a counselor will include providing instruction about space exploration, and conducting simulated missions and training exercises.

She’ll lead based on experience. Harrelson first attended Space Camp at age 13, although somewhat reluctantly. She tagged along only at the urging of a persistent cousin.

“I remember that first night being like, ‘I don’t want anything to do with this,’” Harrelson said.

She quickly changed her mind. “I wound up just falling in love with space and really started growing as a person and learning about teamwork and becoming a leader.”

Harrelson returned to the camp four times while in middle school and high school. During her third summer there, when she was 15, Harrelson landed a role in the Emmy-nominated Netflix documentary “The Mars Generation.” The documentary, which was filmed in 2015, features astronauts and other space experts who weigh in about the future of space exploration.

Its true stars, according to The New York Times, are the “brilliant, space-obsessed teens, who take part in special camps designed to simulate what it might be like to travel to and even live on Mars.” Harrelson has a significant role, appearing throughout the more than hour and a half film. She’s shown engaging in Space Camp activities, interacting with peers and being interviewed.

The role earned Harrelson a paid trip to the Sundance Film Festival in January 2017 in St. Lake City, Utah, where “The Mars Generation” premiered. The documentary was released that May on Netflix, where it’s currently available for livestreaming.

“The entire experience was really just very cool, and very humbling,” Harrelson said.

Harrelson also decided on a career while at Space Camp. In summer 2019, during her first stint as a camp counselor, she realized she wanted to teach while watching children “have aha moments when they would understand a new concept.”

Harrelson anticipates earning her bachelor’s degree in Spring 2023. Her future students, however, will only learn about space if it’s subject matter included in the pages of fiction.

A lifelong reader, she plans to teach English.

“Education had always been a little bug in my ear, but I honestly never realized I could be a leader until Space Camp. The more I thought about it, the more I was like, ‘This is what I need to do, help kids find out who they are and where they’re supposed to go,’” Harrelson explained.

Reginald. F. Lewis Scholars Program

Research Project

Shaun Harper along with Kuykendall (2012) developed eight standards for Black male achievement. Key among those standards is: academic achievement, student development, and improved degree attainment rates must be prioritized over social programming. Although many programs, including the Reginald F. Lewis Scholars program, allow for out-of-the-classroom engagement and experiences that serve to enhance community building and social and network capital, the Reginald F. Lewis Scholars program will also place emphasis on learning and academic achievement opportunities, specifically research experiences. Not only will engaging in research create a more robust academic experience by connecting the student’s classroom theory with a practical, real-world problem, but it will also provide a built-in research mentor. The scholars will have the opportunity to present their research at the University of Louisiana System’s Academic Summit as well as other disciplinary professional academic conferences.

Study Abroad Experience

As part of the Reginald F. Lewis Scholars Program, scholars will participate in faculty-led research and international exchange program. The international component will take place over two semesters during the scholar’s junior year. The first semester of his junior year will involve registering for a cultural competency course at the ULS institution where the scholar is enrolled. This course will be taught by the faculty member who will lead the study abroad trip. During the second semester of his junior year, the scholar will enroll in a research and travel abroad class at the ULS institution where he is enrolled. As part of the class, all ULS scholars will be assigned a topic of research to work on jointly with students from a ULS international host institution. During the same semester, scholars will travel abroad to the host institution to present the research alongside students from the host institution.

Management & Leadership Institute Partnership

The Management and Leadership Institute for the Universities of Louisiana (M&LI) is a two-semester program for mid-career faculty and staff who aspire to broadened academic, professional, or administrative leadership roles. The Institute will immerse participants in a program designed to maximize their effectiveness in management roles. Nine two-day sessions will be held over the course of two semesters, with each of our Universities of Louisiana campuses hosting a two-day session.

Reginald F. Lewis Scholars will have the opportunity to participate in the sessions held at their University’s campus. Scholars will join Management and Leadership Institute participants in gaining a deeper understanding for effective leadership in higher education.

Systemwide Service Learning Project

The Reginald F. Lewis Scholars will collaborate with the University of Louisiana System Student Advisory Council annually to participate in a system-wide service learning initiative. The Scholars will benefit from their service learning experiences as service learning has a positive impact on students. Service learning initiatives serve to increase students’ skills and knowledge. Service learning projects also allow students to engage with others outside of their circles; thus, providing them with meaningful life-long experiences. Ultimately, the Scholars will be able to apply what they will learn to “real world” experiences and develop a commitment to service.

Mentoring

The Reginald F. Lewis Scholars on each campus will be mentored by faculty, staff and upper-class students on their campuses. Students will be given a survey to complete to determine areas of focus and challenges for the scholar. Each campus will create a mentoring team to support the scholars. Mentors will be selected to meet with the scholars and address the areas of focus and challenges for the scholar. In addition, the mentoring team will provide professional development and personal development experiences, and social opportunities to connect the scholars to leaders on campus.

One-on-one mentoring: Students will meet weekly with their mentor to discuss a variety of topics including classes, college life, resources, challenges

Professional and personal development: Mentors and scholars come together and participate in workshops and experiences that help students grow professionally and personally

Socials: Mentors and Mentees will attend several planned socials with campus leaders and student leaders

Scholars Retreat

Scholars will be required to participate in a retreat experience annually. The retreat will offer students the opportunity to engage in team-building exercises, set personal goals for the upcoming year, develop leadership skills, and strengthen collaborations. This shift in perspective is a rare opportunity for student scholars to reflect and share their needs, challenges, and victories in higher education.

Using ultra-low latency live video streaming to engage audiences in new ways

Co-Authored by Todd Erdley, CEO and Mary Elder, Corporate Communications Manager from Videon. The content and opinions in this post are those of the third-party author and AWS is not responsible for the content or accuracy of this post.

Live video streaming is undergoing a dramatic shift as more and more consumers turn to mobile phones, smart TVs, and other connected devices to view and interact with real-time content such as sports, esports, concerts, and news. To provide the best possible live viewing experience, content creators and video providers need to reduce video latency—the time that elapses between the action and when it reaches viewers on their screen of choice—so audiences can enjoy, share, and interact with live content while keeping pace with the action.

Imagine watching a sporting event on your tablet using a live streaming service. That video typically arrives 30-45 seconds after the actual event. By contrast, linear broadcast TV arrives roughly five seconds after the event. Take that into account as you sit in one room of your house with your smartphone watching a game’s live stream while the same game is being played in a different room via traditional broadcast. Suddenly you hear shouts of excitement that have nothing to do with what you are seeing. The excitement of the moment you are about to view has been diminished due to video latency.

Videon and Amazon Web Services (AWS) take a unique approach to solve this problem using Videon’s EdgeCaster encoder, AWS Elemental MediaStore, and Amazon CloudFront. The EdgeCaster 4K HEVC/H.264 video encoder supports ultra-low latency video streaming through the direct output of HLS/DASH CMAF-formatted signals while also enabling traditional RTMP workflows along with many other common streaming formats. The HLS/DASH/CMAF output from EdgeCaster is ingested by MediaStore, which serves as the origin for delivery by CloudFront to end user devices worldwide. As this is a standards-based workflow, a wide range of iOS, Android, and HTML players can perform video playback. In this configuration, customers experience end-to-end latency of just three seconds for live video with global distribution.

In September, this workflow came to life for the 2019 FIVB Volleyball World Cup in Japan. FIVB was seeking to optimize the viewer experience and applied ultra-low latency (ULL) technology from Videon and AWS to create a parallel OTT workflow to linear broadcast TV.

Using this workflow, the tournament was viewed by more than 30,000 peak concurrent viewers and over 500,000 unique viewers. A stable latency of three seconds held consistently throughout the event, ensuring an outstanding experience for both OTT and broadcast viewers.

The FIVB Volleyball World Cup showcased the use of the Videon / AWS workflow for live streaming video and the impact it can have. While a live sporting event is an excellent application for ULL workflows, it’s not the only one: corporate town halls with interaction between a worldwide workforce and the presenter is another, as are events where social video engagement can create a deeper connection with viewers. The use of standards-based, scalable technology allows for this wide range of live events to achieve distribution and engagement never before realized.

The days of live OTT streaming delayed by more than 30 seconds are coming to an end. With synchronized delivery of live events, an entirely new level of experience is possible without the penalty of being slower than traditional broadcast. Broadcast will continue to be a strong form of content distribution, with OTT enhancing the overall viewing experience through additive services that create untapped opportunities for user engagement.

This post just scratches the surface. To learn more about how ultra-low latency video workflows from AWS and Videon can enable a multitude of new business opportunities for content owners, watch this webinar.

WASTE FEW ULL

Project

 
WASTE FEW ULL will map and substantially reduce waste in the food-energy-water nexus in cities across three continents: Europe, Africa and South America.
 
Waste occurs across food, energy and water systems. At the interface of these systems, waste increases significantly the over-consumption of our limited resources. Resource scarcity is not only a matter of efficiency, but of access, distribution and equality. Understanding  different pressures and opportunities in distinct urban contexts is important for identifying processes by which cities can identify, test and scale viable and feasible solutions that reduce the most pressing inefficiencies in each context.
 

The aim of the WASTE FEW ULL project is to develop and test internationally applicable methods of identifying inefficiencies in a city-region’s food-energy-water nexus. We will undertake this through an international network of industry/civic society-led Urban Living Labs (ULL) in four urban regions – UK (Bristol), Netherlands (Rotterdam), South Africa (Western Cape) and Brazil (São Paulo). Partners in Norway and the USA will provide economic valuations of potential impact, and impact-led public education, outreach and dissemination.
 

The Urban Living Labs (ULLs) of stakeholders are organised to

  • map resource flows
  • identify critical dysfunctional linear pathways
  • agree the response most appropriate to the local context
  • model the market and non-market economic value of each intervention
  • engage with decision makers to close each loop.

The project will contribute with policy decision support models for economically viable waste reduction, rethinking waste as a resource as well as establish entrepreneurship networks in each ULL to continue working after the formal end of the project.
 
Duration of the project
WASTE FEW ULL runs from 2018 to 2021.
 
Funding
WASTE FEW ULL is funded under the EU Joint Programming Initiative (JPI) Urban Europe.
 
Project Partners
Coventry University, University of California, CICERO Senter for klimaforskning, University of Bath, University of Reading, Wessex Water Services, Bristol Food Network, GENeco, The Schumacher Institute, University of Campinas, University of Cape Town, ERWAT, Isidima Design & Development, BlueCity
