NASA’s Digital Learning Network, or DLN, is excited to offer a unique opportunity to ask questions of an actual mission control flight officer at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston. Students will have a direct connection to the public affairs console and will witness the inner workings of the International Space Station’s Mission Control Center. Additional flight control officers specializing in life support, power, data/communications and robotics may be also be available to speak with students.

Before you connect with mission control, a DLN education specialist will spend approximately 30 minutes with your students highlighting the many science, technology, engineering and mathematics concepts that are important aboard the space station. Give an incredible, inspirational opportunity to your students and illustrate real-life applications of science, technology, engineering and mathematics in action.
