||Students at Oxford Intermediate talk with NASA
OXFORD, Miss. (WTVA) — When you were young, did anyone ask you what you wanted to be when you grew up? Maybe you said an astronaut.
Well the students at Oxford Intermediate School learned that dream may not be so far-fetched after all.
Twyla Schneider from NASA stopped by the school today to talk to the students about space and also the different careers offered at NASA.
She reminds the students that it takes more than just astronauts to have a successful mission to space.
"They don't have to be an astronaut or a physicist to take part in this journey that NASA is on. As long as they have an interest and a passion, they can be part of this."
Schneider answered lots of questions from the students.
One of the first questions they asked was about the failed rocket launch on Tuesday in Virginia. She told the students they'll have to wait a few months for answers.
