RELEASE:  04-023

ISS CREW TALKS TO MAINE STUDENTS ABOUT HAVING "THE WRIGHT
STUFF"

     The Expedition 8 crew aboard the International Space
Station will talk with students at Fairmount Elementary
School in Bangor, Maine tomorrow from 10:05 to 10:25 a.m.
EST.

As Maine prepares to welcome its own Challenger Learning
Center and NASA Educator Resource Center, Expedition 8
Commander and NASA Station Science Officer Michael Foale and
Soyuz Commander Alexander Kaleri will answer student
questions and illustrate some of the opportunities and career
rewards that can accompany excellence in science, math and
reading.

This year, Bangor Public Schools is tailoring its science,
math and reading lessons to the theme of "Centennial of
Flight" to peak students' interest. Throughout the year,
teachers will extend NASA research-based methods to the
classroom to encourage students to aim high in their academic
and lifetime goals. The program especially targets students
from under-served communities.

The teachers of the participating students, University of
Maine pre-service teachers, parents and community members
will join the students. The coordinators of this event have
also invited local political and academic officials. All
Maine schools are invited to view this event via the Adelphia
Cable school channel.

The downlink is part of a series with educational
organizations in the United States and abroad. It is an
integral component of NASA's Teaching from Space Program. The
Teaching from Space Program promotes educational
opportunities that use the unique environment of human space
flight. The program builds partnerships with the education
community to create unique learning opportunities through the
use of NASA research and educational technology.

The event will be on NASA TV. NASA TV is available on AMC-9,
transponder 9C, C-Band, located at 85 degrees west longitude.
The frequency is 3880.0 MHz. Polarization is vertical, and
audio is monaural at 6.80 MHz. For information about NASA TV
