SMV Students to Present at NASA Student Symposium in Houston

April 13, 2012


Two St. Mary's Visitation eighth graders, Molly Carrig and Frankie Ragonese, have qualified to present their research paper at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Explorer School's Student Symposium in Houston May 4-6, 2012.
To qualify for the symposium, the girls conducted an investigation that focused on how to protect delicate instruments that are dropped onto different planets and presented it virtually to a panel of NASA personnel. The St. Mary's students will travel with SMV junior high science teacher Mrs. Kathy Biernat to present their investigation findings to NASA personnel and other students attending the event.
Thirty schools, each with one team, were invited to the symposium, which will be held May 4-6. This two-day event will feature an astronaut presentation, facility tours, student activities and a career awareness panel of young professionals working at Johnson Space Center. The panelists will share information about their work, hobbies and interests, as well as, experiences that influenced their decisions to pursue studies and careers at NASA.
