Special to SEGAZINE
Gifted students from all Brantley elementary schools gathered at the Board of Education office Thursday to take part in a NASA-sponsored emergency simulation drill as first responders. Students were organized into three teams responding to natural disasters and making life-saving decisions based on science. The students communicated with a NASA specialist that dispersed information to the public based on the students findings. Students were divided into three groups, one group worked with a hurricane in progress, the second team worked with an unstable volcano and the third team worked as an evacuation team with all emergencies happening simultaneously. The groups united to make the best decisions for the public based on gathered information. They relayed their knowledge to designated commanders in each area that relayed their information to the NASA natural disaster specialist.
