NASA astronaut Shane Kimbrough and Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) astronaut Akihiko Hoshide will answer prerecorded video questions from students and alumni of the Harlem Link Charter School in New York City. Harlem Link is a pre-kindergarten to fifth grade charter school that has offered a student-centered curriculum to families in Harlem since 2005. Harlem Link enrolls students from across the five boroughs of New York, maintains an active alumni network, and enrolls new students on a rolling basis throughout the school year to better serve families facing difficult circumstances such as housing instability or a need for special education services.
