Biographical Information:


Photo of Ambassador Dana Kasian Dana Kasian has spent the last 4 years getting her graduate degrees at the University of Florida and working on a research team for UF's Center for Excellence in Early Childhood Studies. Now as an employee of the School Board of Alachua County, she hopes to bring JPL' research to local students. While teaching in Orlando, she attended Space Florida's Teacher Academy and got to work in a lab overlooking KSC's rocket garden. She built a GPS device which was successfully launched in a weather balloon from the KSC site, which she still sees as one of her most exciting accomplishments! She took part in the Seeds in Space program and planted seeds harvested from the space station with her class for their science fair project. She now looks forward to sharing her passion for space science with the Gainesville community!
