As the bells signaled students to proceed to their third period class on November 19, 2009 at the Academy of Information Technology and Engineering (AITE), some students rushed their way into the Media Center to listen to Dr. Corinna Lathan’s presentation.
Have you ever heard of Mr. Alarcon running a club? Probably not because the only thing you have heard about him is that he is a science teacher, and he loves food. Mr. Alarcon runs the Scientific Research Advisory class for the NASA-ISS program along with his science classes. Now you are most likely asking, what is NASA-ISS? Well, NASA-ISS is a program that only three schools are involved with; AITE, Sir Winston Churchill High School and Dorsey High School.
There are exciting programs going on at The Academy of Information Technology & Engineering (AITE) that not everyone is completely aware of. One program, in specific, is the National Aeronautics and Space Administration and the International Space Station (NASA-ISS) program that AITE has participated in since 2006. AITE is one of three schools who are participating in this program; the others who are involved include; Sir Winston Churchill, located in Calgary, Alberta in Canada and Dorsey High School, located in Los Angeles.
