Hear and talk with astronaut Nicole Stott at the Dunedin Historical Museum this Sunday — and more!

Space and Aviation Day — Dunedin FL

This is a press release I received from the Florida Aviation Historical Society (FAHS) about a great opportunity to be with a NASA astronaut in Dunedin Florida this Sunday, 25 March. Her name is Nicole Stott, a veteran space traveler and space walker having flown into space twice as a mission specialist (she has an engineering background) — including a stay on the International Space Station — and has done much more in NASA than fly into orbit.

Obviously this is more than simply a great opportunity for children to intimately see and hear a person who has high skills in math and science along with great physical fitness. As you will read on the poster, other exciting events are planned for Dunedin’s Space and Aviation Day with an historical talk, large scale remote control (RC) aircraft as well as an RC helicopter flight. The setting is fun and intimate, so there will hardly be a better time or opportunity to introduce children to an excellent role model who is bright, articulate, fit and on an envious professional career track.

The proper name of the museum is the Dunedin Historical Society and Museum — and its location is 349 Main St, Dunedin FL — which is in the town’s center.

Sunday, March 25, 2012, hometown Astronaut Nicole Stott will be at the Dunedin Historical Museum  in celebration of Space and Aviation Day, proclaimed by the City of Dunedin. The event is from 11 am to 3 pm, with presentations by Nicole and by the Florida Aviation Historical Society.

Also, the Dunedin Flyers will demonstrate their remote controlled World War Airplanes.

All activities will be outside in front of the Museum, which is located on Main Street where it meets the Pinellas Trail.
