NASA STEM AFTERSCHOOL comes to 21st CCLC

Mrs. Calla Busby, NASA Grant Manager, visited 21st CCLC for three consecutive Mondays in September. She provided interactive curriculum for middle grades students that covered force, flight and motion concepts that aligned with the regular school day activities. NASA STEM AFTERSCHOOL provided middle grades students with an exciting opportunity for 21st CCLC students to experiment with design challenges in the area of rocketry and engineering design. NASA has already impacted the students of Bleckley County Middle School and Bleckley County Elementary School. The collaborative is grant supported entirely by the Informal Education department of NASA.
