As a follow-up to the district's remarkable opportunity to make audio contact with an astronaut aboard the International Space Station in March, approximately 25 students from the high school visited the Cradle of Aviation Museum for an hourlong presentation by former astronaut and current U.S. Senator Bill Nelson.

Sen. Nelson spoke to students about a variety of space-related topics, including his experiences orbiting the Earth in the Space Shuttle Columbia in 1986, and how it shaped his views on the environment and future space explorations. He also discussed lesser-known stories of the late American astronaut John Glenn.

The ongoing partnership between Freeport Schools and the Cradle of Aviation is an extension of the district’s commitment to providing students with unique scientific-enrichment opportunities.
