"It was amazing!"

That was the common response by students at Nettleton STEAM after an event that occurred Thursday. Nettleton STEAM was selected to be the only school in Arkansas that would ask questions of two astronauts aboard the International Space Station. Microbiologists Dr. Shannon Walker and Dr. Kate Rubins answered several questions in a 20-minute event. Some of the questions asked were related to some of the projects that students are working on in class. Some of those projects include water filtration systems, space suits, robotic arms, and more.
