Laker JH SSEP team travels to Washington



LAKER — In early July, four members of the Laker Junior High Student Spaceflight Experiments Program (SSEP) team traveled to the SSEP National Conference at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum. The team members presented to scientists and engineers about the team's experiment that's been chosen to be launched into space in November to the International Space Station. In their experiment, the junior high team members are examining whether they can get bones to stop losing calcium in space. While at the conference, the students did a PowerPoint presentation and they were interviewed by Smithsonian personnel. They also met with SSEP founder and national director Dr. Jeff Goldstein, an astrophysicist. The team members who went on the trip include Sarah and Hannah Hammond, Nicholas Wolschlager and Chandler Furness. The team also includes Chelsey Katshor and Halle Keim, who were not able to make the trip.
