While students and community members gather at the Osage County Fairgrounds, Mann and her crewmates will join the event via live satellite broadcast to answer their questions.
Patrick Martin, the superintendent of the immersion school, said in a press release that students have been gearing up for this event with months of space-related activities, including a rocket launch. Wednesday’s event will also offer science, technology, engineering, art and math activities for kids and other community members.
