St. George's Catholic School in Seattle, WA.

On Tuesday, I visited St. George's Catholic School in Seattle, Wa. I first spoke with the preschool and then presented to the Kinder - 4th, and 5th through 8th graders. I was only able to get photos with the preschoolers because I was really pressed for time with the other assemblies. The kids were fascinated with the launch video from the camera mounted on one of the solid rocket boosters. The video I showed was similar to the one at the following link: click here for video. At the end of the presentation, I passed out mission decals and a launch photos which they were so excited about!
