During this half-day symposium, sponsored by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), scientists and education specialists shared information with teachers about the 21st Century Explorer project, about NASA’s Crew Exploration Vehicle, and about how the human body changes during space flight. The presenters led activities that enhanced the participants' knowledge about space flight, science, and engineering that can be easily replicated in their classrooms. All participants received educational materials and information about related links available via the NASA web site. Former NASA Astronaut Michael Baker, who participated on four Space Shuttle missions, was one of the presenters of this Symposium sharing his spaceflight experiences with the audience.
