Today, high school students got a behind-the-scenes experience at the Astronaut Space and learned how critically important planning and determination is.
For young students, the project focus on STEM through exploration, play and building curiosity about how the space program began and the way things work. "STEM learning is important for everyone and can happen anytime, anywhere. The real-life skills that kids develop when learning STEM through our program help make everyone better problem-solvers and learners", commented Carla Michaelis with TMFGE.
For the High School student Henrique Crosby., it was an eye-opening trip.
"It's a really good experience for us kids to get out and explore and get a better understanding of how the space program works and we're able to get a better perspective of all the opportunities that are available for us,” Henrique said.
Our special thanks to Mr. Gary Hayward and Michael Lombardi.
