A Baldwinsville teacher is making a dream come true and helping his students appreciate math. 

Baker High School's Chris Ludden will be joining several local teachers at the Honeywell Educators At Space Academy, at the US Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville, Alabama.  Ludden says they will take part in activities actual astronauts would do, and every participant will receive their own flight suit.  He says the goal of this experience is to translate his own excitement about the academy to his students, with the hope it will inspire them to pursue more education toward what are called "STEM" careers - science, technology, engineering, and math.

Ludden says it's also a personal dream come true - he's always wanted to be an astronaut.
