Mr. Robert DeCoursey from NASA came to share with Ms. Lindquist’s first graders all about the Orion spacecraft. We learned about the crew module where astronauts will live, work, and control the spaceship; the service module that provides the power, air, and water for the crew; and the safety systems for launches. Students loved seeing and touching the rocket and module models, exploring all the various astronaut “space” food, trying on some of the astronaut’s equipment, and watching test flights! Every student even took home a NASA goody bag and can build their own desktop model! What a fantastic STEAM opportunity for our first graders!!
