Students at Amityville Memorial High School participated in NASA’s Kennedy Space Center Journey to Mars Education event, called “So You Want to Be a Martian.” The event featured a live video chat with NASA experts and actors from the new movie “The Martian.”

During the digital learning program, students were educated on various facts about NASA as it prepares for humans’ first steps on Mars in the 2030s. The event also featured a curated panel discussion with Kennedy Space Center Director Bob Cabana, NASA Planetary Science Division Director Dr. Jim Green, a NASA astronaut, a NASA botanist and two stars from “The Martian.”
