I had the pleasure of visiting the 5th grade students of William Burnett Elementary School in Milpitas, California. We talked about science, technology, engineering and math and learned about the Sun, Space Weather and the International Space Station. From far away, Astronaut Reid Wiseman was sending his regards to all the students.
