A science teacher, Nikki Candy spent a week at Space Camp at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center (USSRC) in Huntsville, Alabama. She was awarded a coveted scholarship from Honeywell to participate in their Educators @ Space Camp Program, which was developed in partnership with USSRC to specifically for middle school math and science teachers from around the world.
During the week spent at USSRC Nikki participated in variety of activities including laboratory and field-training, simulated astronaut training exercises, high-performance jet simulations, scenario-based space missions and flying programs. Trainees perform lab experiments, repair satellites and add modules to the International Space Station — simulated, of course. And then there was the simulated Space Shuttle Mission… What an adventure!
