Heidi Lucier, our science ALP teacher and the rest of her team, organized a cross-curricular NASA day for their students!  The class had a guest speaker who works with the International Space Station (ISS) team for NASA. She shared what it is like to work in the flight control room and communicate with the astronauts on the International Space Station.  She shared her experiences and her educational background and what got her interested in space exploration!  The students took a virtual tour of the space station and she answered MANY student questions.  After the visit, the teachers did a creative writing prompt assignment and also a math lesson on calculating weights on different planets.  What a cool day for the students!
