Guests at the Tom Joyner Family Reunion learn about NASA activities during the five-day event. Thousands of visitors spoke with agency representatives who explained the NASA’s efforts with the International Space Station, Commercial Crew Program, Ground Systems Development and Operations Program, as well as the Launch Services Program.
The Tom Joyner Family Reunion is designed to present uplifting programs, entertainment and information about growing, diverse communities. An annual event of the nationally-syndicated Tom Joyner Morning Show, the many exhibits included NASA's participation focusing on encouraging young people to consider studies and careers in STEM -- science, technology, engineering and math. NASA's Education Division promoted the benefits of math and scientific learning along with career opportunities offered by the space agency. The activities took place at the Gaylord Palms Resort in Kissimmee, Florida, during the Labor Day weekend. Photo credit: NASA/Daniel Casper
