Philadelphia LE - Youth to interact with International Space Station crew
Philadelphia youth will be able to interact with the International Space Station crew.
Destination Imagination students and youths from Philadelphia schools and Boys and Girls clubs will be able to talk one-on-one with astronauts in space.
The event will take place from 10:35 to 10:55 a.m. on Tuesday, June 26.
"We are pleased to partner with Destination Imagination to educate the innovators of tomorrow," said D.R. Widder, executive director of innovation at Philadelphia University, which is a national sponsor of DI. "Philadelphia University's educational mission is grounded in our Nexus Learning approach: collaborative, active, project-based and connected to the real world. The NASA project employs these values to teach students in an innovative and collaborative environment."
Cherry Hill, the largest program of its kind in this world that teaches critical thinking, creativity, collaboration, and problem-solving was chosen by NASA to have DI problem-solving challenge teams to participate in the downlink.
"Destination Imagination is honored to be chosen as the recipient of the NASA downlink allowing students the unique once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to ask questions of astronauts on board the International Space Station," said Chuck Cadle, CEO of Destination Imagination, based in Cherry Hill, NJ.
