HRPO's Science Academy will have a session on Expedition 9 this Saturday from 10am to 12pm. The program is for eight- to twelve-year-olds. The cost is five dollars per in-parish child and six dollars per out-of-parish child. There is a maximum capacity of sixteen. As with all ISS sessions, there will be a sampling of the actual ISS menu and construction on the circuit board.
