Fourth-grade students at Archer Street School received a visit from a special guest to supplement their lesson about outer space.

Barry Howard, of the Garden City-based Cradle of Aviation Museum, spoke to students about astronauts and demonstrated how difficult it is for them to perform necessary tasks in outer space. To simulate astronauts’ suits, students put on blue gloves similar to the ones used by spacemen, and were challenged to complete tasks such as combining the heads of soda bottles and turning a screw into a bolt.
