On June 13, 2013, Cascade K-8 Community School participated in an in-flight Education Downlink with the International Space Station. The entire student body, school staff, and many parents gathered at the Shoreline Center for the event.
Through NASA's satellite TV channel, students were able to ask questions and get live answers and demonstrations from real astronauts, currently on the International Space Station!
The whole school was a-buzz all week getting ready for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. This event follows the in-person visit with Yi So-Yeon, Korea's first female astronaut, last year. Cascade students are setting their sights high and shooting for the stars!
Cascade is Shoreline’s only K-8 school with about 150 students. Cascade offers the STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) program as a core component in its middle school.
