This week, as part of NASA’s Inspires Futures for Tomorrow’s Youth (NIFTY) spring eclipse program funding, we visited the Columbus Boys and Girls Club to do STEM related activities with the students there.

On Thursday, with the help of Dr. Crossley, we explored the vertebrate tree of life with a set of small animal toys



Then on Tuesday, I worked with students to build paper straw rockets in preparation for the NASA representative they would be meeting with the next day over zoom.
