January 30, 2020


It is mainly you, me and the music this morning, but in the last hour today I am joined by Viki Stiebert Director of the International School and Nikki Baratt Coordinator of sustainability of the International School.  “International students in Panama had the opportunity to talk with NASA astronauts aboard the International Space Station. NASA astronauts Christina Koch and Jessica Meir answered questions from student’s pre-K through 12th grade from the International School of Panama and middle school students from other schools in Panama City which include the King’s College and Magen David Academy. Linking students directly to the astronauts aboard the space station provides unique, authentic experiences designed to enhance student learning, performance and interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.”
