So Much More to Learn!
Lessons continue to multiply, covering health, math, science, dance, technology, art, and engineering. “I’ve never seen kids so excited to do jumping jacks,” she reflects on a health lesson on astronaut training. “Their interest has been consistent. There isn’t a week that goes by without them having a question or mentioning something they learned about space,” Jaime says. “It’s been really cool to see their joy in it.”
In math class students measured each other to see if anyone met the minimum requirement of 5’ 2” to be an astronaut. Once every student had their turn, they were curious to see if Jaime could make the cut. As they measured her, the excitement grew. Jumping up and down, they exclaimed, “Jaime, you can go to space!” She laughs, “I think there are a few others things I need before I go to space.”
