Media representatives are invited to attend and watch as students ask the astronauts questions about life, work and research aboard the orbiting laboratory. Interested media must contact Jenna Smith at smith@putnam.org or 563-324-1054 ext. 210. The Putnam Museum is located at 1717 W. 12th St. in Davenport.


NASA activities have been incorporated into classes at local schools in preparation for the air-to-ground conversation with the astronauts. Linking students directly to the astronauts aboard the station provides them with an authentic, live experience of space exploration, space study, and the science of space travel, and the possibilities of life in space.

This in-flight education downlink is one in a series with educational organizations in the United States to improve teaching and learning in the areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics, or STEM. 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.
