For two weeks, the materials were on loan at the school. Science teacher Garrett incorporated the specimens into science lab lessons, and second grade teachers Kochanowski and Hayes developed space-science lessons for their classrooms.


All three teachers enrolled in a class given by NASA at Warner University, which provided certification and allowed them to borrow the specimens.
