Former NASA Astronaut Scott Kelly has a unique insight into staying engaged and motivated during a lock-down.
Kelly became the first American to spend 12 consecutive months in space after completing a 340-day stint on the International Space Station.
Astronaut Scott Kelly announced that he will be taking part in Research Quest Live, a program that lets students take part in live sessions with professional educators from the Natural History Museum of Utah during this period when schools are closed. This will take place live on Friday at 11:30 am ET.
While encouraging students to persevere during a lockdown, Astronaut Scott Kelly narrated his experience while on space and how he went from being a bad student to a Navy fighter pilot, test pilot, and eventually an astronaut.
The Research Quest classes are offered via Livestream every weekday and are available on-demand 24/7. Students from 50 states have accessed the program so far and topics such as paleontology, ecology biodiversity, and climate are offered.
