Purdue Space Day 2005
Directors: Erin Calderwood and Lindsay Gossom
The annual event has grown in size over the years and the 10th annual Fall Space Day took place on Saturday October 22, 2005, with Col. Mark N. Brown as guest VIP astronaut. It drew over 380 elementary and middle school students from the local community and surrounding counties to Purdue, with over 140 Purdue students from 22 majors who ran the day. The twenty one groups were named after Purdue alumnus astronauts and for the first time the main location was moved away from the Class of 1950 Lecture Hall to the Loeb Theatre in the Stewart Center. In addition to some old favorite activities such as water rockets, three new activities were introduced this year. Students in grades 3-4 tried out Zoon Air Cars, grades 5-6 had as a new activity Straw Rockets and students in grades 7-8 had a Solar Car activity to try for the first time.
