MATTHEW PARRIS VISITS CMS ASTRONOMY CLUB

Matthew Parris, former NASA test engineer, visited the Crosby Middle School Astronomy Club on December 5th, 2014. He spoke to students and their families about his NASA career being responsible for ensuring experiments from around the world functioned properly prior to being sent to the International Space Station (ISS) aboard the Space Shuttle. He used videos about the space shuttle and personal pictures from his time working for NASA to teach students about space flight, how objects above the earth remain in orbit, how experiments for the ISS are prepared and stored for space flight, and how living in space affects humans. Mr. Parris is a graduate of Eastern High School and the University of Louisville, J.B. Speed School of Engineering.

ABOUT THE ASTRONOMY CLUB

Welcome to the Crosby Middle School Astronomy Club. Our goal is to introduce students and their families to the wonders of the night sky and to provide opportunities to learn about space. Meetings are held on Friday evenings once or twice each month throughout the school year. Activities include observing the night sky with the unaided eye, binoculars and telescopes (There are telescopes and binoculars available for student use.); indoor activities that support the middle-level study of astronomy and aid the student to know what to look for and how to find objects; becoming familiar with astronomy sites on the internet; visiting the planetarium; learning to keep a log of observations; presentations by outside personnel from various local Astronomy Clubs; and linking with other local astronomy clubs for special observation sessions.

 Since astronomy is an activity which is conducted at night in the dark, and since safety is of utmost importance, parents need to personally accompany their students or appoint a responsible adult in their place. Several Astronomy Club members may come to meetings with one adult who will be responsible for them. However, students should arrange this prior to each meeting to avoid confusion. Astronomy is a family affair. Brothers and sisters of Astronomy Club members are encouraged to join the student and their parents.
