A peek into the 2017-2018 season of STEM in 30, a fast-paced, interactive classroom program.

Did you know that training for a spacewalk requires a 6.5 million gallon swimming pool, a team of divers, and a mock-up of the International Space Station? Astronauts have to train for a variety of different jobs they have to do in low Earth orbit. Once on the station, astronauts run science experiments (sometimes on themselves), fix toilets, and run the robotic arm. Do you think you have what takes to complete astronaut training? Find out on this STEM in 30.

This program is made possible through the generous support of the Gertrude E. Skelly Charitable Foundation.
