News Flash from Barrett’s Project Discovery…

Barrett’s NASA Save The Earth team has won first prize in the Spaced Out Sports Challenge Contest! NASA contacted Mrs. Greene, Mrs. Cohen, Dr. Sullivan, and Mrs. Bratt that they had some great news–which was out of 57 entries nationwide, Barrett had taken 1st place in the contest! This was the result of a huge team effort by all of the fifth grade teachers, along with Ms. Shaw’s wonderful filming and editing talents! The kids worked very hard to design a fun, yet challenging sports based game for astronauts aboard the International Space Station to play on an upcoming mission!

For taking first place, our entire school will be awarded a NASA Celebration Day–details are coming soon on this! Also, the game will be played by the astronauts and our students will be able to communicate with the astronauts about their game plan!
