USS Trident hosts me as a guest speaker to homeschooled students!

Something I enjoy the most is going out and talking to highschool students to encourage them and entertain them with science, engage them in behind-the-scenes of space shuttle processing, and act as a mentor through the critical years for these students. On Tuesday October 17, 2006, USS Trident, a local Treasure Coast Chapter of Starfleet International, hosted a "Science Night" meeting for local homeschooled students in Port St. Lucie, Florida and I was the guest speaker. It was a great group and I know they enjoyed my talk. Here are some pictures from that night.....

Outstanding, definitley need more people ( esp. women) in the sciences...and mathematics too! What is spread out on the table in front of you in the last picture? Are you putting something together or are they some sort of props? Cool, they made you an "honorary crew member" too...

There i was showing them a really cool close up picture I had on my laptop of an astronaut during the STS-121 spacewalk. It's an amazing picture! The other articles on the desk are tiles and gap fillers that I brought in for show.
