NASA DownLink

Aperture with Congressman Scott Garrett and Superintendent Kennedy Greene at the NASA Downlink Exposition 30

Aperture with Congressman Scott Garrett and Superintendent Kennedy Greene at the NASA Downlink Expedition 30 held at Newton High School, 2012.

The students participated in a variety of space-focused science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) educational initiatives in preparation for the space station downlink. They also designed a special patch to commemorate their interaction with the orbiting astronauts.

This in-flight education downlink is one in a series with educational organizations in the United States and abroad to improve STEM teaching and learning. It is an integral component of NASA’s Teaching from Space Program, which promotes learning opportunities and builds partnerships with the education community using the unique environment of space and NASA’s human spaceflight program.

Aboard the International Space Station, Expedition #30 Commander Dan Burbank and European Space Agency Flight Engineer Andre Kuipers fielded questions from students representing several school districts comprising the Tri-District Curriculum Consortium in Newton, N.J., during an in-flight educational event conducted on Feb. 22, 2012.
