Two Cassini Science team members talking to students

February 1, 2006

Two members of the Cassini Science Planning team, Kelly Perry and Chris Roumeliotis, visited Shirley Avenue Elementary School in Reseda, California, to speak about the Cassini mission and answer students' questions.

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 were 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.
