NASA Essay Contest for Grades 4-12

NASA Glenn Research Center is celebrating 80 years! Located in Cleveland, the Glenn Research Center “designs and develops innovative technology to advance NASA’s missions in aeronautics and space exploration. It has world-class facilities including wind tunnels, drop towers, vacuum chambers, and a research aircraft hangar.”

To honor the Center’s 80 years, students in grades 4 – 12 are invited to join the celebration by learning about NASA Glenn’s missions and people, and then writing an essay explaining how they are inspired or how new space discoveries may change our lives in the future.

See the NASA Glenn site here for important dates and details!

Write Your Story! A Summer 2020 Program

Imagine Your Story … and write it, too! Children in preschool through fifth grade are welcome to join our fun and creative “Write Your Story” program this summer!

Registered participants will pick up a blank booklet from the Children’s department and then write and illustrate their own stories … fiction, fantasy, biography, graphic novel, poetry, or anything at all.

We will contact you after you register to let you know when to pick up your blank book, and it will be due back to us by Saturday August 8.

More details will follow on what we will be able to do at the end of the summer for all of our young authors!

Registration is required and open now. Go here for more details.

We encourage you to write about whatever you would like, and we look forward to reading each and every one!
