Students Skype with NASA

Students at Elkhorn City Elementary School in Pike County got a special treat Thursday morning.

Two people from NASA's Langley Research Center in Virginia put on a presentation to teach students about NASA and what it takes to be an astronaut.

They even talked on Skype with an astronaut who had been in the International Space Station.

They say the program is to encourage kids to stay in school and increase interest in math and science.

Students from Feds Creek Elementary School also got to attend.
