Robert Mitchell and Students
February 1, 2006

Students from Shirley Avenue Elementary School in Reseda, Calif., visited NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory to see the image they selected. Robert T. Mitchell, Cassini program manager, presented them with a poster of the image.

The students participated in the pilot edition of "Cassini Scientist for a Day," a program designed to expose students to the kind of decisions scientists make routinely. They where given three equally valid choices and had to decide which observation would bring the most science. After a lively debate, they choose to image the rings.
