Although it would be easy to spend all our time focused on
the mission, Spacesim members also invite elementary classes to come visit
during our Elementary Education Programs (EEP).
This program, originally designed by Miriam Padolsky and
Hilary Myron (collectively known as Milary), is run at various times during
the year. Students attending the program get to learn various things about
science, technology and space. Furthermore, they get a chance to see our
setup and use some of the equipment our various sponsors have given us or
enabled us to buy.
Spacesim members running the program also get a chance to
share their interests, knowledge and love of the subjects with younger
students... who knows, maybe that kid who keeps asking questions will grow
up to be a physicist or an astronaut!
