Pickett County 5th Graders have chance to talk with NASA scientists

Pickett County 5th Graders have chance to talk with NASA scientistsThe Pickett County K-8 5th grade Science classes were one in five schools who had the privilege of getting to talk with and ask questions to NASA Scientists at Tennessee Tech University via video conference. Along with PCK-8, DeKalb West, Tuckers Crossroads, Prescott South Middle School and Doyle Elementary students were able to ask five questions pertaining to the Space Launch System (SLS) in which each student complied on their own while studying aspects of Our Solar System and Space Travel.
NASA's SLS is an advanced, heavy-lift launch vehicle that will provide an entirely new capability for science and human exploration beyond Earth's orbit. The SLS will give the nation a safe, affordable and sustainable means of reaching beyond our current limits and open new doors of discovery from the unique vantage point of space.
Mark Smith, Hannah Richardson, Carson Reels, Hailey Claborn and Mackenzie Zachary were students that had the opportunity to ask the NASA Scientist questions.
