Purdue Space Day 2006
Directors: Dorrie Byford and Breanne Wooten
The theme for this year's event was "The Eagle has landed" and our honored guest was astronaut Greg Harbaugh. For the 2006 event, 628 elementary students registered with 503 taking part on the actual day. This is the highest number ever to attend. PSD is in its 11th year of program execution, with 3,508 grade school students and 1,055 university student volunteers participating in the program since its inception in 1996. As we needed to accommodate more students this year, we moved the main presentation to the north Ballroom in the Purdue Memorial Ballroom. For the activities this year, we introduced two new ones and brought back some favorites from previous years. The new ones were the Rotor Motors and Delta Darts and Kites and the older ones brought back were the Satellite launch and the Egg Drop.
