FREE UM-Flint/GenNET Special Collaborative ITV Event with Dr. Andrew Feustel

Friday, May 1, 2015 Dr. Andrew Feustel will be on the campus of the University of Michigan-Flint for a full day of activities on campus for a "Super Science Friday." During the day he will be inspiring students in the Flint area about work and careers in science and industry, including aeronautical interests.

Dr. Feustel grew up in Lake Orion, Michigan where he graduated from Lake Orion High School followed by attendance and earning degrees from Oakland Community College, Purdue University and then a doctorate degree from Queen's University in Ontario, Canada.

As part of the day on May 1st, Dr. Feustel would like to reach as many students as possible. He has agreed to meet via distance learning/interactive television with classrooms to share his educational journey and professional career at the NASA Space Center as an astronaut and mission specialist.

Since this event is a live two-way interactive television event, registered classrooms will not only be able to meet Dr. Feustel, but there will be an opportunity for them to interact with him by asking questions about his work in his field from their ITV room.

***NOTE: Recommended for students in Grades 5 thru 12.
