Gus Bus NASA Challenge Program

Description

the JMU Institute for the Innovation in Health and Human Services Gus Bus Program collaborated with NASA to bring high-quality science, technology, engineering and math experiences to Stone Spring Elementary School students. Students participate in programming that is jointly developed and delivered by Gus Bus and NASA as part of a collaborative program with the U.S. Department of Education’s 21st Century Community Learning Centers. For example, Monica Guzlik, a mechanical engineer with the Glenn Research Center in Cleveland, skyped with a group of third through fifth graders at Stone Spring to discuss her journey becoming an engineer.
