Space X speaks to Students about Beresheet

Thursday, 14 March, 2019 - 12:22 pm

 Our 5th graders and Upper School students had the special opportunity to enjoy a remarkable presentation from professional space engineers and scientists.  Our own STREAM Lab Coordinator, Dr. Greer invited these accomplished professionals to teach about space exploration. 

They explained the historical launch of the first-ever lunar-bound Israeli  spacecraft, Beresheet. The spacecraft was launched by SpaceIL, a non-profit Israeli organization, who received the Google Lunar X Prize to land a spacecraft on the Moon.  

Our students swelled with pride as the spacecraft shared its first-ever “selfie” from the moon portraying a picture of the Israeli flag, and the words:  “Small Country, Big Dreams”.  

Our guests were impressed by the thoughtful questions our students asked and the curiosity they demonstrated.  We were proud of how our students welcomed and showed respect to our visitors.
