A Virtual Visit with Barbara Morgan
What would it be like to visit with Barbara Morgan, the first educator astronaut to go into space?
Woodbury Jr.-Sr. High School students will have that virtual opportunity on October 18th. On that date, from 3:00-4:00 pm, Woodbury students will take part in a video teleconference featuring Barbara Morgan.
The technology will enable interested grade 6 through 9 students to see and hear Ms. Morgan. Additionally, they will be able to ask the astronaut questions.
Having access to a NASA videoconference is part of the NASA Explorer School grant relationship that has been in place since 2005. Woodbury School District is the only school system in southern NJ to have received the special honor of being named a NASA Explorer School.
