St. Ann Students have an alternative field trip with NASA

In conjunction with the STREAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) Program, students in grades 4 – 8 had the exciting opportunity to Skype with Astronaut Sunita Williams.

 

Sunita L. Williams (Suni) was selected as an astronaut by NASA in 1998 and is a veteran of two space missions Expeditions 14/15 and 32/33. She is currently assigned to the cadre of astronauts training to fly the initial test flights for America’s first commercially built spacecraft the Boeing CST-100 Starliner and SpaceX Dragon. She and her crewmates are working closely with the commercial providers to develop their new spacecraft systems, which will eventually provide round-trip crew transportation services to the International Space Station beginning in 2017.
