NASA Glenn Research Center launches exploration day to get more students into STEM

An article by News 5 Cleveland shares that NASA Glenn Research Center recently opened its campus to 200 CMSD high school students for a Career Exploration day to get more students interested in STEM careers.

At NASA, they’re used to launches, but this time, their mission is the next generation.

“It’s absolutely the lifeblood of what we’re doing. If we want this work to continue, we have to bring in young, enthusiastic, energetic people to learn,” said Lancert Foster, a NASA aerospace engineer.

About 200 CMSD students explored the NASA Glenn Research Center.

“So, we are always happy to have our students have real-world tangible experiences,” said Anthony Battaglia with Cleveland Metropolitan School District.

Students got hands-on experience and heard from space researchers, scientists and engineers.

Aerozone Alliance Executive Director Hrishue Mahalaha was interviewed by News 5 as part of the story.
