Out-of-this-world project puts Jackson students’ art on NASA satellite

JACKSON TWP. – This is a classroom art project that is out of this world.

Students in Lindsay Fuzer’s fourth grade class at Strausser Elementary School last school year were asked to create artwork to decorate the exterior of a NASA satellite that will be launched into space.

For more than a year, organizers and students had to keep the project under wraps as classrooms across the United States created artwork for the first children’s art show in space.

“It’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience,” Fuzer said. “It’s the first time children can send a message to the universe.”

Jackson’s 26 fourth-graders spent several art hours creating their own masterpieces that answer the question, “What are you most proud of about Earth that you want to share with the universe?”
