NASA Kennedy Space Center Director Goes to School to Share New Vision with Nation's Youth
Kennedy Space Center, Fla.
February 12, 2004
NASA's Kennedy Space Center director, Jim Kennedy and a NASA
astronaut will visit Stewart Magnet Middle School, a NASA Explorer
School (NES) in Tampa, Fla., on Feb. 20 to share the agency's new
vision for space exploration with the next generation of explorers.
The school is located at 1125 Spruce Street and the presentation
will begin at 1 p.m. at the media center.
"Just as the youth of the 1940s became the pioneers that launched
our current space program, the students of the new millennium will
turn President Bush's new space exploration vision into reality,"
said Kennedy. "I can't wait to come to Stewart Middle Magnet School
and share the President's vision so students can find out how they
can be a part of our nation's future space exploration programs."
Kennedy will talk with students about our destiny as explorers,
NASA's stepping stone approach to exploring Earth, the moon, Mars
and beyond, how space impacts our lives, and how people and machines
rely on each other in space.
For media interested in arranging interviews with Kennedy in
conjunction with his visit to Stewart Middle Magnet School, please
