Students Visit NASA
Monday, October 29, 2012
On September 27, 2012, students from Galena Park ISD visited NASA as part of the High School Students United with NASA to Create Hardware (HUNCH) program. Over the next semester, students from North Shore Senior High School's Metal Trades class, instructed by Damon Starr, will manufacture hardware to be used on the space station. NASA will communicate their needs and specifications for the hardware to be built. The students will then design, test and build a solution. Once created, the parts will be delivered to NASA where they will then be placed on the International Space Station (ISS).
Students from Galena Park High School's Audio Visual Production class, instructed by Melvin Harris, will document the entire process. They will video, direct, produce and publish a complete video documentary of the procedure.

Students are also given opportunities to examine a future career path. This path may lead to employment with NASA, or any number of related indust
