Eighth-grade students at St. Nicholas/St. Mary School, Wilkes-Barre, are participating in the LIU 18 NASA Endeavour Program. Students meet at Wilkes University and King's College and take part in challenges related to STEM (Science, technology, engineering and math) education. The teams work directly with NASA scientists, technicians, engineers and regional NASA ambassadors. The program provides students and educators the opportunity to learn and utilize the NASA engineering model to solve actual NASA problems. In October, they communicated with a NASA engineer responsible for designing the Curiosity rover. They also constructed models and calculated densities of the stages in the formation of a black hole. Participants, from left, first row: Janice Szczechowicz, teacher and NASA facilitator; Sean Lickers; Shelby Smith; Jenna Jachimiak; Nicole Cavanaugh; Collin Gatrone; and Haley Gobla. Second row: Patrick Sgarlat, Alia Mazzatosta, Amanda Curcio, Abby Kebles, Kevin McDonald and Kelsey Sterling.
