February 25, 2015 – Student participants of Food Brings Hope’s KidsZone and TeenZone after school programs were treated to a special presentation by NASA engineer Dr. Firouz Naderi at Mainland High on Tuesday, February 24.
Dr. Naderi’s presentation, titled “How big is the universe? And what is in it?” explained the universe, stars, and other potential habitats for life within our solar system and beyond. He accompanied his slideshow with a short film on how to get to Mars, comparing the distance to Earth from Mars and the Sun.
