Purdue Space Day 2004
Director: George Pollock
The 9th annual Purdue Fall Space Day took place on Saturday November 6, 2004. The VIP guest was astronaut Col. Guy S. Gardner, who, along with his wife Linda, was on hand during the day to interact with the students and give them first hand information. This year, the age ranges were split differently and we had three age ranges instead of the previous two; grades 3-4, grades 5-6, and grades 7-8. The theme of this years' event was "Fly Me to the Moon" and we increased the groups to 21, each being named after a famous spacecraft. For the second year, the Purdue Fall Space Day web site took registrations online. From the 355 students who registered for this event, 334 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. The web page also carried all details and information for parents and teachers. For the second year, a video has been made of the entire event; this was then edited and turned into a DVD that can be viewed on a desktop computer or a DVD player.
