The American Turkish Society continues its support for Global Friendship Through Space Education by sponsoring U.S. educators and students to participate in "E-Pal Week" taking place at Space Camp Turkey. The Society's support this summer will allow Jose Estrella, principal of the Manhattan Middle School for Scientific Inquiry, Tina Brunson, a teacher at Patria Mirabal Middle School 324 in New York City, and Olvy Nunez, former student at MS 324 to participate in this special summer session, which brings together email pals from schools in Turkey and United States. Space Camp Turkey will be hosting 28 students from the U.S. this year, one of its largest groups ever, along with students from Turkey and Greece.
In addition to ongoing support of Space Camp Turkey with scholarships to students and teachers to participate in the program, The Society also regularly hosts events to unite Space Camp Turkey family and friends to share their experiences in Turkey with others. Most recently in March of 2011, the alumni and prospective participants of Space Camp Turkey met with Turkish-American students from the Ataturk School in New York City.
