D.C. SCHOOL TO RECEIVE NASA SPACE SHUTTLE TILE DURING BLACK HISTORY MONTH EVENT MONDAY

WASHINGTON -- Leland Melvin, NASA's associate administrator for 
education and a former space shuttle astronaut, will present a space 
shuttle tile to Bruce Monroe Elementary School at Parkview and speak 
to students on Monday, Feb. 27. 

Representatives of the media wanting to attend the event should 
contact Ann Marie Trotta at 202-358-1601 or ann.marie.trotta@xxxxxxxx 
by 9 a.m. Feb. 27. The school is located at 3650 Warder Street NW in 
Washington. The event begins at 1:30 p.m. and is expected to last 90 
minutes. 

Melvin will share with the students his experiences as a crew member 
aboard the space shuttle Atlantis on two missions, STS-122 in 2008 
and STS-129 in 2009. He also will discuss NASA careers, including how 
to become an astronaut, and the opportunities available to students 
who pursue science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) studies. 

NASA's education programs employ the agency's many missions to inspire 
learners of all ages. The space shuttle tile program is an example of 
how the agency uses its unique assets to engage student audiences.
