RISTA's Astronaut Lollapalooza! 

We hear a lot about the importance of introducing phenomena to our students and engaging them in asking thoughtful questions. Here's a great opportunity to do both! The RI Science Teacher's Association is organizing a "downlink" NASA event in a state-wide initiative for students to ask ISS astronauts questions. This NASA video provides an example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ToH2JisUyx0

NASA will give us the date and time soon. 

If interested in participating in the Astronaut Lollapalooza , please complete this three question Google Form which will collect your email.
