Students in Regina were treated to a presentation on Thursday put on by NASA and the Regina Catholic School Board.
NASA scientist William McKinnon spoke with Grade 6 and 9 students at O’Neill High School about space exploration and career opportunities.
Students were also taught about NASA’s latest project, the New Horizons mission, where Pluto and it’s moons are being explored in depth.
Grade 9 student Aemen Mohsin said the presentation inspired her to continue exploring career possibilities in science.
“Being around so many people my age is encouraging me to do a lot better and, watching the presentation, it’s really helped me,” she said.
