• San Marino High Students Meet With Astronauts of International Space Station


    by Winston Chua

    SAN MARINO – Some 150 San Marino High School students Thursday morning participated in an unprecedented videoconference from the Career Center at San Marino High, the location of a meeting between students from all over the country and the National Center for Earth and Space Science Education, NASA, the Smithsonian National Air Space Museum, the U.S. Dept. of Education and astronauts of the International Space Station.

    SMHS Senior Jacqueline Truong received the opportunity to ask her pre-selected question (on the topic of  developments in space exploration) live to NASA astronauts, to audiences in Illinois, Texas, Iowa and New Jersey, to name just a few.

    SM Biology teacher Wyeth Collo, who has organized the event for the past two years now, said the event took months to prepare for but was well worth the effort. He believes opportunities like the one Thursday give students “the confidence to do real science” for not just today but for their potential careers.

    Collo last year on July 4 gathered students together to go to Washington D.C. to quench their scientific thirst.

    Among the various topics covered by televised astronauts this morning were weightlessness, how to fulfill your dreams, how disappointments open doors to the future, the importance of hard work, renewable energy, global warming and much, much more.
