SEATTLE STUDENTS CHAT WITH SPACE STATION ASTRONAUTS ON MONDAY

WASHINGTON -- Students gathered at the Museum of Flight in Seattle 
will make a long distance call to astronauts aboard the International 
Space Station at approximately 1:35 p.m. EDT on Monday, Aug. 29. 

Students from Aviation High School, Puyallup High School, Civil Air 
Patrol and Liberty High School will ask Expedition 28 Flight 
Engineers Ron Garan, Mike Fossum and Satoshi Furukawa questions about 
life, work and research in space. The event will include a video link 
with the three astronauts and will be broadcast live on NASA 
Television. 

To attend the event, reporters must contact Mike Bush at the museum at 
mbush@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx 253-307-3225. 
The museum offers a variety of education activities that explore 
science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) and the space 
program. It also hosts the Washington Aerospace Scholars program, a 
hands-on, STEM-focused initiative for high school juniors based on 
NASA's Texas Aerospace Scholars program. 

This in-flight education downlink is one in a series with educational 
organizations in the United States and abroad to improve STEM 
teaching and learning. It is 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. 

The exact time of the downlink could change. For the latest NASA TV 
schedule, visit:
