LBANY, Ga. — Albany State University gave area media a glimpse Monday of NASA’s educational efforts in Southwest Georgia.
The Aerospace Education Lab, located in the James Pendergrast Library, is part of ASU and NASA’s SEMAA (Science, Engineering and Math Aerospace Academy) outreach to the region’s schools.
“We want to give the media in our area a chance to experience the only aerospace education laboratory in the University System of Georgia,” said Danielle Johnson, data program manager/family cafe coordinator of ASU’s NASA SEMAA Program. “Our program provides an exceptional resource for students in our area.”
The program serves students K-12 from eight schools in Dougherty County and all of Worth County.
“The lab has 11 work stations,” lab coordinator Sammie Sims said.
“It’s no secret that the Unites State is lagging behind our rivals in the world when it comes to math and science. This is a hands-on experience and we are trying to get as many kids as possible involved.”
