Students hear presentation on space program

May 04, 2009

Students in Debra McPherson's third-grade class at Sharpsburg Elementary School heard a presentation on the NASA space program April 22.

Ralph Silvestro, a human resource analyst for the federal government, wearing a facsimile spacesuit, emphasized that students will need advanced skills in reading, writing and mathematics to become involved in the space program.

Silvestro showed students small bottles of facsimile "moon dust" and gave each student a uniform patch from the space program. Silvestro said he has "flown" in space in computer simulations.
