International Space Station crew members Karen Nyberg and Chris Cassidy will speak live from the orbiting science laboratory with high school students at the Riverside Preparatory Academy in Oro Grande, Calif., at 10:40 a.m. PDT (1:40 p.m. EDT) Thursday, Aug 15.

News media representatives are invited to attend and cover the 20-minute event, which also will be broadcast live on NASA Television and the agency’s website. To attend the event, journalists should contact John Tucker at 760-243-4136. The school is located at 19900 National Trails Highway in Oro Grande.

Linking students directly to the astronauts aboard the space station provides them with an authentic, live experience of space exploration, space study, the scientific components of space travel, and the possibilities of life in space.

This in-flight education downlink is one in a series of such events with educational organizations in the United States to improve science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) teaching and learning. It is also an integral component of NASA’s “Teaching From Space” education program, which promotes learning opportunities and builds partnerships with the education community using the unique environment of space and NASA’s human spaceflight program.
