The Viera High School, KSCIA and The Michaelis Foundation hosted the "STEM Night Meeting With Space Experts" event on October 23rd to inspire local and international students to consider taking up STEM – science, technology, engineering and mathematics – subjects in school.
Students had the opportunity to meet and exchange ideas with two guest speakers who are working in the space program. During the presentation students learned about the International Space Station and some of the innovative experiments that are being conducted on the ISS.
The Michaelis Foundation has invested years developing programs that build bridges between the United States and the world. We are honored to be co-hosting this amazing program and welcoming students and educators from all over the world to the Space Coast to experience first-hand leadership in international space education that our country has to offer," says Jefferson Michaelis, Space Educator of The Michaelis Foundation.
"The experience and expertise that The Michaelis Foundation brings to the world is very much needed in the time we live in today," said Jose Carlos Filho (JC) head of the International Space Cooperation (ISC) for KSCIA International Space Academy (KSCIA). "Working with students who think and feel differently from us, who come from different cultures is a life changing experience."
We not only guide young students to learn mathematics science, but we also actively promote compound education in space, with new PBL experiments, science and technology, and promote cooperation to different ethnic groups, so that the whole society gains on this global cooperation and harmony among various countries says Carla Michaelis project manager of The Michaelis Foundation.
Special thanks to Mr. Michael Gisande and Janicce Harp.
