A group of students is coming to NASA Ames to learn first-hand about how
technology can increase the ability to erase the boundaries of physical
limitations and provide new ways of expressing emotions.

Deaf and hearing students from Indiana high schools will participate in a
variety of activities to learn about sensory systems such as sight, hearing
and touch, and the use of technology in helping humans adapt to unique
environments and “extending” the senses.

On June 14, students will be available for live interviews to discuss their
hands-on science and technology learning experience at NASA’s Ames Research
Center in the heart of Silicon Valley in California.

Book a window with deaf and/or hearing students on Thursday, June 14,
between 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. EDT (12:00 – 2:00 p.m. Central/ 10:00 – 12: 00
p.m. PDT). Deaf students will have an interpreter who will sign the
questions and vocalize the answers.

Possible Questions for Students:

  • What did you learn about NASA?
  • How can NASA technology help you?
  • What is the most exciting thing you learned during your visit to Ames?
  • Do you think science is going to change the way people live in the future?

    To book an interview, call Victoria Kushnir 650-604-0176 or e-mail at
