Davenport students take part in phone call with astronauts aboard the International Space Station
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Dave Loebsack released the following statement today after students from the Davenport School District participated in a telephone call with astronauts currently aboard the International Space Station. The call was hosted at the Putnam Museum’s National Geographic Giant Screen Theater in Davenport.
“I am very proud that our students had such a fantastic opportunity to take what they have learned about in the classroom and interact with those who are experiencing it firsthand. Iowa is home to some of the most dedicated and brightest students, and I’m grateful that NASA recognized this as well. The folks at the Putnam Museum again demonstrated why they are one of the leading museums for learning and opening our kids’ eyes up to the opportunities ahead of them. The chance for our students to engage with NASA astronauts demonstrates the value of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) learning and the opportunities we can embrace to create the jobs of the future right here in Iowa.”
