On Friday, February 3, 150 Wellington High School students boarded buses for the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex for a day of hands-on STEM education. Students learned the history of America’s space program, toured the Atlantis Shuttle, experienced a zero gravity simulator, and took part in a simulated shuttle launch. A highlight of the day was a motivational speech from NASA astronaut John O. Creighton. Students ended the trip by rotating through math and engineering seminars that tested their own astronaut capabilities. Read more here.
