Dear Learners and Families,

We wanted to share a few quotes we hope encourage and inspire you this week.

“Successful and unsuccessful people do not vary greatly in their abilities. They vary in their desires to reach their potential.” – John Maxwell (Brown)

“Nothing is particularly hard if you break it down into small jobs.” – Henry Ford (Howard)

“Winning doesn’t always mean being first. Winning means you’re doing better than you’ve done before.” – Bonnie Blair (Howard)

Learners, please reach out on days that you are absent. My direct line is (661) 537-3719.

iLEAD Students Prepare for Launch to Space Station

ISS

A team of iLEAD students is preparing to send a science experiment aboard the SpaceX-16 Falcon 9 rocket to the International Space Station (ISS) scheduled to launch on December 4.

The project is part of a partnership between iLEAD and DreamUp, the leading provider of space-based educational opportunities. The students’ experiment, which will be on the ISS for approximately four weeks, tests whether black coffee kills a type of bacteria found in everyday plaque on teeth in microgravity in the same way it does on Earth. This launch opportunity is made possible via DreamUp’s partnership with NanoRacks and its Space Act Agreement with NASA.
