According to a NASA press release, yesterday, February 27,  2012, Leland Melvin, NASA’s associate administrator for education and a former space shuttle astronaut, presented a space shuttle tile to the Bruce Monroe at Park View School and spoke to the students.

During the presentation, Melvin shared his experiences as a crew member aboard the space shuttle Atlantis on two missions, STS-122 in 2008 and STS-129 in 2009. He also discussed NASA careers, including how to become an astronaut, and the opportunities available to students who pursue science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) studies.

NASA’s education programs employ the agency’s many missions to inspire learners of all ages. The space shuttle tile program is an example of how the agency uses its unique assets to engage student audiences.
