Purdue Space Day 2003
Director: Jen Watson
The 8th annual Purdue Fall Space Day took place on Saturday October 25 2003. The VIP guest was astronaut Col. John E. Blaha, who was on hand during the day to interact with the students and give them first hand information about what it is like to be an astronaut. This year we increased our numbers and registered 315 students, which is the highest number ever to attend.The theme of this years' event for Celebrating the Centennial of Flight and each of the twenty groups this year was named after a famous American aviator. For the first time this year, the Purdue Fall Space Day web site was able to take registrations online. From the 315 students who registered for this event, 220 registered online. Information was also posted elementary students, parents and Purdue student volunteers. In addition, the sponsors' page also included links to their home page. For the first time in 2003, we had a student videoing the entire event; this was then edited and turned into a DVD that can be viewed on a desktop computer or a DVD player.
