The NASA researchers will demonstrate to teachers and students the principles of microgravity, and will participate in classroom activities designed to demonstrate the effects of microgravity on objects in space. The program will also highlight a classroom experiment where students working in teams will collect and analyze data from the launch of "Fizzy-Tablet Rockets." Former U.S. Senator John Glenn (D.
