This media-rich project was designed to educate and entertain. SPRAY, a McLain Science Education creation, was made in cooperation with NASA, Johnson Space Center, Colorado State University and Lucasfilm.
The museum educators giving this presentation will be aided by none other than R2-D2. The famous Droid took time from yet another secret mission to help kids learn about science in space.

R2 was shot on green screen for this project at Industrial Light and Magic and composite at Del Padre into an Imperial Star Destroyer and called up as needed by the live educator. The crew of the STS 107 offered a personal, first-hand account of what it is like to be in space and the training and preparation it takes to get there.
