Astronaut Skype Session
By: Rebecca Playford
This week grades 5 and 6 participated in “Skype with Astronaut Dr. Jessica Meir”. This was arranged through a proposal to NASA. Students were actively engaged in learning about Dr. Meir’s endeavors in science along with her path to becoming an astronaut. Through models and examples, Dr. Meir taught students’ facts about space & life on the International Space Station. She also revealed that she will be heading to the ISS this September! At the end of the session, many students were able to ask her their inquisitive questions! It sure was an out of this world experience!
