“Mission BISD: All Systems Go” technology and science camp students are gearing up to chat and ask questions during a call to the International Space Station crew on Thursday, June 26, from 10:50 a.m. to 11:10 a.m. CDT. Students from the camp and local school district in Burleson, Texas, will have the opportunity talk with the crew about math, science and mission activities occurring on the station.

NASA’s education downlinks support the agency’s efforts to encourage students to study and pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. These events, facilitated by the Teaching From Space Office at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston, use the unique experience of human space flight to promote and enhance science, technology, engineering and mathematics education.

The downlink will air live on NASA Television and be streamed on the NASA Web site at:
