Special Guests at the Sun Worldwide Education Conference
By rebeccalui on Feb 28, 2008
We had a busy week at the Sun Worldwide Education and
Research Conference in
KTSF Channel 26
There were so many great speakers at the conference. I was really honored to meet Dr. Kathy Sullivan, the first American woman to walk in space. Kathy logged 532 hours in space and had been on three space shuttle missions. She told me that being in the shuttle is like “riding a controlled explosion.” Kathy, like Sun, is working hard to nurture young students. Kathy has a passion for igniting in others the wonder and importance of science, math and technology. She currently serves as Director for Ohio State University's Battelle Center for Mathematics and Science Education Policy.

We invited five Sun Campus Ambassadors to attend the conference. They are Ezequiel Singer from Argentina, Greg Corbin, Kumar Abhishek from India and Vincent Ding from China, and Sergey Pisarenko from Sweden.
