I happened to come across an interesting twitter account the other day in my preparation for my launch adventure ... @AstronautAbby
AstronautAbby has a dream and is working towards it ....
Here are some places you can learn more about her and journey:
- Astronaut Abby - Thoughts of an aspiring astronaut
- NASA - Astronaut Abby Hearts NASA
- Meet a Teen with Space Dreams
She recently shared about her experience in a google hangout with some 5th grade students: Promoting STEM in Schools: My Very First Classroom Chat - Astronaut Abby.
One of my favorite lines from that post was ...
Since she mentioned her willingness to do STEM WebChats and even provided a link to the sign-up form, I contacted her and will be chatting with her in 2 weeks!
So if you and/or your children/students have questions that you would like for me to ask AstronautAbby about her dream, her journey, her projects, or anything, then just leave a comment and let me know!
I want our questions to be better than the reporters too!
