Astronauts Barbara Morgan and Leland Melvin visit with students and teachers at the Hardy Middle School in Washington, DC.
NASA Astronauts and Educators are traveling the nation, meeting face-to-face with future space explorers: teachers and students.
Astronauts Barbara Morgan, Leland Melvin and Educator Astronaut co-manager Debbie Brown, are visiting schools, museums, and teacher conferences in New York, California, Texas, Puerto Rico, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Idaho in March and April, reaching out to discuss student and teacher involvement in the nation's space program.
More than 5,900 students, family members, and friends have nominated their teachers to become permanent members of NASA's Astronaut Corps. This week one student in Michigan nominated his teacher saying, "He makes me want to come to school every day."
The application deadline for the Educator Astronaut Program is April 30, 2003.
