Dr. Sally Urquhart, a retired teacher after 30 years, helped with Zaras Corner!
Andrea Pearson-Haas is helping design the curriculum with a focus on going above and beyond the typical efforts to make sure the students have a voice to shape their future while acting as Space Princess and exposes them to enrichment activities to increase engagement and input while her partner Zara of Triton is unavailable. Reggie Burns is a librarian at the University of Texas at Dallas and helped with resources for coordination of doing the program at local libraries and finding resources from other space programs. This will be incorporated with state-regulations used as the minimal template and challenge the kids to think not just to pass tests. Most teachers we talk to love to teach but hate to formulate teaching around state standards that are inflexible for creativity. The new generation is our future and we want to know what the future holds and are here to being open and receptive to encouraging their dreams. Space Princess does not watch TV unless she is communicating with NASA through it or she has been invited to a social gathering, because mainly she does reporting on camera, and loves to read.

Using an art installation from her biology teacher Dr. Mehmet Candas called “The Ultimate Interface” Space Princess interviewed the participants for the science summer camps.
Dr. Mehmet Candas is a scientist, educator, and occasional multimedia artist at the University of Texas at Dallas. He teaches in the School of Natural Sciences and Mathematics, including Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, Biotechnology, Cellular Microbiology, Modern Biology, and Human Body Systems. His research concerns biochemical and genetic basis of cellular responses to their environment and how cells integrate signals into survival or death pathways. He also enjoys exploring living things and their surroundings through approaches involving art, philosophy and aesthetics. He believes art and science enhance our consciousness and advocates that understanding the harmony in nature and deciphering the inner workings of biological systems holds the key for finding solutions to grand challenges we all face.
