Students from Oklahoma and Texas will have separate opportunities this week to hear from NASA astronauts aboard the International Space Station.

The two space-to-Earth calls will air live Monday, Aug. 14, on NASA Television, the NASA app, and the agency’s website.

At 12:10 p.m. EDT, NASA astronauts Steve Bowen and Frank Rubio will answer prerecorded questions from students in Kingfisher, Oklahoma. The event, hosted by Kingfisher High School, will connect the students’ knowledge of agriculture to plant science on station and STEM career opportunities. U.S. Rep. Frank Lucas, chairman of the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology, will give opening and closing remarks.

Bowen and Rubio also will answer prerecorded questions from students at the Odyssey Academy in Galveston, Texas at 1:50 p.m. Through the event, the academy hopes to attract a diverse group of students to STEM and increase participation in STEM activities.
