8:30- 12:00 We worked on activities related to space that strengthen the math/science connection
1:00 Astronaut simulators: I included a video of me on one of the simulators. The ride actually lasted quite a bit longer, but it will give you the "gist" of the simulation experience.
By the way, thank you to Sam Wanzer for convincing me that I could handle this!
2:30 Talk from NASA's Ed Buckbee about the astronauts behind the scenes.
4:00 IMAX movie about the Shuttle Program
6:00 Dinner and a flash mob
7:15 Talk by Homer Hickman, the author of Rocket Boys. October Sky was based on this book.
I will not be posting tomorrow night because I will be scrambling to pack. Details about Day 6 including Space Camp graduation will be posted at some point next week. Thanks for following! It has been quite a ride!
