space adventure

Dr. Curtis Varnell, science specialist with the Guy Fenter Education Service Cooperative, visited first grade students at PES last week. He spoke to the students about the conditions when traveling in space, what astronauts eat and wear while in space and reasons for traveling to space. Students had the opportunity to dress in astronaut gear, as well as try some astronaut food and watch a rocket launch demonstration. Dr. Varnell will return to PES in a couple of weeks to give the students an opportunity to build and launch their own class rocket outside.
