Margaret Blaser of Gearhart recently attended the Advanced Space Academy at the U.S. Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville, Alabama.
The weeklong Space Camp educational program promotes science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), while training students with hands-on activities and missions based on teamwork, leadership and problem solving.
Blaser trained with a team that flew a simulated space mission to the International Space Station. Once aboard, the crew participated in experiments and successfully completed an extra-vehicular activity, or spacewalk. Blaser and crew returned to earth in time to graduate with honors.
