Culminating Activity:

SciGirls has received approval from NASA for a live media contact with the International Space Station on August 19th (scheduled for between 9-11am CT) with astronaut Christina Koch.

Girls from all participating locations will share their questions about living and working in space with SciGirls who will provide them to NASA and our host site, The Challenger Center of Ramapo, NY. The girls at Ramapo will conduct the conversation on behalf of all of our participating SciGirls. Twin Cities PBS will work with Ramapo to provide a Live Stream for all sites to participate. The downlink will be streamed on NASA TV and recorded for wider dissemination throughout the SciGirls network.
