Last Wednesday (October 6), more than 1,000 homeschoolers and their parents came to the Virgina Air & Space Center in Hampton to learn about flight and space exploration. This HEAV-sponsored event included a special presentation by NASA astronaut Susan Kilrain. NASA scientists and space center volunteers also provided many hands-on stations for science experiments and physics projects.
During the day, I was not only invited to give a presentation at the Peninsula Museum Association’s meeting that was being held upstairs in the Air and Space Center, but the visiting museum representatives also got to see a museum packed with homeschoolers!
