Atlantic teacher Chris Perry and four teachers from Poinciana Elementary STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) Magnet School have been selected by NASA to build an experiment that they will conduct with their students this spring, and then fly on NASA’s Microgravity Aircraft this summer.
The teachers will spend ten days at the NASA Johnson Space Center in Houston, TX, in July to undergo training and learn more about microgravity and its effects on spacecraft and astronauts. At the end of the week, the teachers will take turns flying on the Microgravity trainer and conducting the experiment. Read more about the project here.
