A number of Gunston Middle School students appeared on national TV yesterday.
The students went on air Thursday during the fourth hour of NBC’s Today Show to ask questions of former NASA astronaut Dr. Mae Jemison, the first Black woman to go into space.
The students asked how to become an astronaut, what it was like in space, and about how difficult it was for Jemison to break racial barriers in her career path.
Arlington Public Schools spokesman Frank Bellavia tells ARLnow that a parent helped to coordinate the appearance for nearly a dozen Gunston students.
This morning, some of our @APSGunston students were featured on “The Today Show” to ask questions of @maejemison about her career in medicine, engineering, and space! And, our kids were GREAT!!! @HodaAndJenna @GuMS_Principal @APSVirginia @Monique4APS @Gunston_PTA pic.twitter.com/r1V6C7Z6cR
