Sally Ride Science instructor Shirli Cohen visited NBC 7 San Diego recently for a segment previewing the Sally Ride Science Junior Academy, which runs from June 24 to July 19. The Junior Academy offers dozens of innovative STEAM workshops for students in grades 4-12.

Cohen brought along two students to talk about the Junior Academy with NBC 7’s Whitney Southwick. They previewed “Space Tango: Quest Institute,” a 4-week course where high school students will program heat-transfer experiments and then run their programs on the International Space Station to see how microgravity affects different types of heat transfer. The workshop is made possible by a partnership with Space Tango and the Quest Institute.
