NASA scientist, Mr. DeVito, visited the Middle School last week, giving our sixth grade students a unique opportunity to explore God’s creation in an exciting new way. Students learned about the new Earth Observing Satellite called Joint Polar Satellite System – 1 (JPSS-1). The JPSS-1 will be launched this week from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California. The JPSS-1 spacecraft will support a broad range of environmental monitoring applications. Mr. DeVito is an AACS parent and NASA project manager for the JPSS-1. Mr. DeVito’s presentation covered topics that Ms. Howe’s science classes will be learning.
