So, who better to ask for more listening help than school kids from around the globe interacting remotely and on-site with the GAVRT program. Located in Apple Valley, California (view map), the antenna is a collaboration between the Lewis Center for Educational Research, NASA, and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory.
Teachers from around the world, including home schoolers, may sign up for free through the Lewis Center's website and take part in their LCROSS curriculum. This is a wonderful opportunity for young science students to get hands-on experience in an important scientific field and to support NASA in a valuable way.
And if this program doesn't directly create excited new young scientists, then it should certainly help drive these students' personal interest and appreciation for science as they become vital and participating citizens in the future.
