We are in the middle of a comet rendezvous simulation mission. This is the kind of thing I would have loved loved loved as a student. I was on a (albeit short) path to astrophysics at one point. This all reminds me that I need to keep STEM in my brain as I plan for reading and writing lessons. These skills can be taught with any content, you know. And it is their future, even here in remote Alaska.
One of the best reasons to do these things? My instructional decisions directly impact by own daughter. Lucky girl, right?
I also think a few video clips from the “Apollo 13” mission control room might be in store tomorrow.
