In an effort to educate the public about our research and NASA's educational programs, we will be visiting the locations listed at the bottom of this page.  Feel free to click on each school's name to read the letter of support they submitted for our team.  Last year, we educated over 500 local students of all ages about space and technology.  The link below labeled "Kid's Experiment Ideas" shows some of the outreach experiments suggested to us by the 5th grade students at Oakland Elementary School last year.
