Superintendent Marcus Chambers also added to the excitement by asking the students, "Who would like to go to space one day?" He further stated, "It is amazing to have a Lieutenant Governor with a vision about Space Florida, a vision to get you all to be thinking even more about space because one of you could be an astronaut one day." Chambers also reaffirmed the importance of STEAM education across Okaloosa Schools.
