Title
Check Presentation from National Space Club

Discussion
For many years, the National Space Club, represented by Space Week Chairman Adrian Laffitte, has supported Space Week in all of our schools.  This year, the National Space Club is providing $40,000 that will be utilized to help send more than 5,000 of Brevard's sixth grade students to Kennedy Space Center in November/December 2010.  This funding will be matched by a legislative grant allocation through the Consortium of Florida Education Foundations.

Recommendation
Accept $40,000 in funding from National Space Club.
