During this half-day symposium, NASA scientists and education specialists focused on the biological and physical aspects of humans living and working in space as NASA completes the International Space Station, returns a human presence on the moon and looks forward to Mars and beyond. The presenters also performed activities that enhanced the participants' knowledge about the topic of living and working in space and served as models for activities the teachers could do with their students in the classroom. The program was designed for teachers of grades 4-9. All participants received educational materials from NASA, including a “Space Garden,” a plant growth chamber that can be used for classroom experiments.
