Feedback: What did you think of this show?:
Dr. Barrett Caldwell joined The Space Show for this program. We spoke about his research and how he incorporates it in space education outreach with the Space Grant program he manages at Purdue University. Dr. Caldwell spoke about team performance and relating team work to space development. Team performance was also discussed in terms of long term space flight, gender differences, and age preferences. Dr. Caldwell then related his research findings and work to K-12 educational outreach. We then discussed space education in the K-12 range, how to keep middle and high school students interested in space, how to use space for various educational modeling, and how to get science and other teachers to use space in their classroom teaching. Several high school and college students sent in questions to Dr. Caldwell sharing their educational experiences regarding space or asking about selected or specialized space career paths. Dr. Caldwell can be contacted for additional questions or comments at firstname.lastname@example.org and the website is www.insgc.org.
