NASA Astronaut to Connect with Camas Students During LIVE YouTube Session


Camas students will have the opportunity to link up with NASA Astronaut and Camas native Dr. Michael Barratt! On May 23, 2024, Dr. Barratt will connect live from the International Space Station (ISS) for a special, 25-minute interactive session. This event will be streamed live on YouTube, allowing everyone to join this extraordinary experience. 🧑🏻‍🚀👨🏻‍💻

During the live session, students from each school in the Camas School District will ask Dr. Barratt questions about life aboard the ISS, his scientific research, and his journey from Camas to becoming a NASA astronaut. This two-way audio and one-way video downlink will allow the audience to see Dr. Barratt in real time as he shares his experiences orbiting the Earth at over 17,000 miles per hour.

Dr. Barratt, a Camas High School graduate, is currently part of NASA’s SpaceX Crew-8 mission, marking his third mission to the ISS. His previous missions were in 2009 and 2011. Dr. Barratt’s passion for space and science has roots in his early years in Camas, where he developed a love for astronomy and exploration. 🔭

We can’t wait for our students to learn more about Dr. Barratt and his out-of-this-world travels! 🚀🪐
