A South Georgia astronaut returns to her hometown to get kids engaged in science.

Jamie Guined is a Scientist Astronaut.

She's set to take her first flight into suborbital space in 2017. This weekend, she's promoting R2H20 Expeditions.

That's her non-profit organization that uses STEM subjects to teach kids about robotic technology, water monitoring and conservation, and space exploration.

"It's really just I hope a creative way to deliver science to the local community and to just motivate children to think about science more and get them out of the house engaged in nature,” said Jamie Guined, Scientist Astronaut.

You can see her display at Pickers in the Park tomorrow starting at 9:00 a.m. near Crisp Regional Park.
