Students from Houston schools crowded into the Dublin Historical Museum last week to have a guided tour by Historical Society president Mary Yantis. The group was in Dublin as part of a collaborative effort between the Dublin ISD and NASA under a program being coordinated by DISD instructional technologist Jennifer Miller.
Escorts for the students included former NASA researcher Tom Chambers who hosted a digital summit on the upcoming Magnetospheric MultiScale mission scheduled for 2014. Students from Dublin, Houston, El Paso and New Jersey skyped from their classrooms as part of the program which studies the sun and its weather.
The Houston students also toured the Ben Hogan Museum and dined at Pizza Pro.
