Call for Questions: Discovery Education Virtual Field Trip to the International Space Station
  • Through our partnership with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), Discovery Education has been given the exciting opportunity to host a Virtual Field Trip to the International Space Station! We are inviting students around the world to submit questions for a chance to have them answered by astronauts aboard the space station. For more information and to submit questions, visit our website.
  • Please note that, due to the complicated and ever-shifting responsibilities of the space station crew, there is always a possibility that the Virtual Field Trip will be delayed or cancelled as a result of circumstances outside of our control. If this event does move forward, it will occur during the first half of the 2023 school year, with more information to follow once a specific date is selected.
