HS NASA Trip
Seventy-five students ranging from freshmen to seniors along with seven chaperones attended NASA on January 24, 2023. Students had the opportunity for hands-on experiences at the Houston Space Center. The students spent four hours examining exhibits, touring the NASA campus, watching a documentary, and visiting the gift shop. Some of the students’ favorite exhibits included seeing the space suits from past missions, touching moon rocks, and getting to tour planes and space shuttles. The campus tour gave the students a chance to see an astronaut training facility, which also showcased projects the NASA engineers were working on. Students were also able to see the Saturn Five Rocket, which was a part of the Apollo missions. While on this tour the students were informed by a tour guide of fun facts and information about NASA and all things space. Overall, the day at NASA was a fun-filled educational experience.
