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!
