Home > Youth Programs > Ethnic Youth Day

In 2012, Middle School students attended a live video conference with NASA astronaut Lori Scott. Students were able to ask questions and hear what it is really like to be an astronaut.

Other activities scheduled for Ethnic Youth Day included:
  • How to train like an astronaut
  • Making star clocks
  • How to dig a hole to the other side of the world
  • Ancient models of the world
  • Time inside the Star Lab
In 2013, the students were able to extract DNA from fruit at Sanford labs. Civil Air Patrol was our host for EYD in 2014. Students were able to view a CAP plane as well as a Avera Medical plane. Storm football players and Dakota Alliance soccer coaches organized games for the kids in the afternoon.
