McAuliffe 8th grade scholars will share their learning about how space technologies impact our lives on a daily basis and they will unveil their final product; three editions of Spinoffs magazine.

We are excited to share that Joe Tanner, a NASA astronaut,  will Skype with us at the event! This is especially significant since Joe Tanner knew Christa McAuliffe personally and TRAINED her to get her ready to be the first teacher in space! Mr. Tanner is excited to be the keynote speaker at our event!

Schedule of events:

5:45-6:00 Welcome and Gallery Walk
6:00-6:15 Skype with Astronaut Joe Tanner
6:15-7:00 Presentation of projects by scholars
