    Story Idea - Future of America in Space


    Hello Friends at CNN - Here's a feature idea you may want to consider for an upcoming newscast. There's a movement sweeping across America and the world to make science, math and engineering accessible to students aboard our national laboratory in space. In June, another supply rocket will leave Earth for the International Space Station (ISS) with experiments  created by Jr. High Students. For the very first time , 12-13 year olds will be learning about how microgravity effects the mixing of various densities and how Penicillin grows.  Experiments they have designed and built themselves. After four years now, Valley Christian Schools in San Jose, CA continues to pioneer this effort teaching more and more schools how they can join in the program. Students from Hawaii to Finland are now anticipating their results from this next launch to the ISS next month. Imagine where this learning will take these bright young students who are about to experience a project of this scale. Mentors are surrounding students with opportunities to excel in these AMSE programs (Applied Math, Science and Engineering). I'm hoping you might have room for this as we look forward to the launch in June. All the best, Brian PS - Here's a link to the Jr. High Media Kit for Valley Christian -  https://www.dropbox.com/sh/bibhw3bgwe08nng/ZfrvIcpQSp      0    0    1    8    52    Rhea Communications, Inc.    1    1    59    14.0
