Idaho Astronaut Will Develop New Science Program

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — NASA astronaut and former Idaho teacher Barbara Morgan will help develop a new Meridian school science program. The Idaho Statesman reports that Linder Elementary School next fall will become the Barbara Morgan STEM Academy. STEM is an acronym for science, technology, engineering and math.

Morgan will help develop the program at the school where work on the science classroom facilities is expected to be finished by fall. Meetings are planned next month to provide enrollment information to parents. Officials say if more students apply than the program has room for, enrollment will be determined by lottery. In 2007, Morgan traveled into orbit on the space shuttle Endeavour.
