NASA Shares Vision for Space Exploration with Chicago Students
NASA officials will visit two NASA Explorer Schools in Chicago next week to share the Vision for Space Exploration with students and their families.

NASA's Deputy Associate Administrator for Space Operations, Lynn Cline and Astronaut Gregory Johnson will visit on Wednesday, Dec. 7, with students at Harlan Community Academy High School, 9652 South Michigan Ave. at 10 a.m. and with students at Barton Elementary School, 7650 South Wolcott Ave. at 1:30 p.m. In addition, NASA will participate in a family night program at each school.

Cline and Johnson will discuss the future of space exploration and the role of today's students as the next generation of explorers. Students will also learn about future career opportunities they can pursue with NASA.

A media availability will be held at each school immediately following the scheduled assembly program. Media interested in arranging interviews with Cline or Johnson should contact Sallie Keith at 216-433-5795 or 216-308-0801 (cell).

Harlan Community Academy High School and Barton Elementary School were named NASA Explorer Schools in the spring of 2005.

The NASA Explorer School program is a three-year partnership, sponsored by NASA, to help educators and students join NASA's mission of discovery through educational activities and special learning opportunities tailored to promote science, mathematics and technology applications and career explorations.

During the partnership, students in the NASA Explorer School Program participate in digital conferences with scientists and engineers at NASA. Educators also take hands-on activities to their students to provide exciting learning experiences in the science, mathematics and technology fields.
