NASA Reaches out to Brook Park Neighbors
 
 
NASA's Glenn Research Center will join the City of Brook Park to bring NASA to the neighborhood during a Family Fun Night that will introduce community members, students and the general public to NASA research through educational activities and exhibits. This free event will be held at Ford Middle School, 16900 Holland Road, Brook Park, Ohio on April 24 from 6 to 8:30 p.m.

"We are very proud to be a member of the Brook Park community," stated Glenn's Center Director Woodrow Whitlow Jr. "I look forward to meeting our neighbors and sharing some of the exciting things that we are working on at Glenn."

Attendees will have a chance to hear from Whitlow as well as school and local city officials including Brook Park Mayor Mark Elliott. A NASA Glenn scientist will discuss the principles of launching rockets and participants will have a chance to build and launch their own water bottle rockets.

In addition to the educational activities and NASA exhibits guests will be able to get a free souvenir photo taken at the "Picture Yourself in Space" photo booth and mingle with Eva, the inflatable astronaut. Ford Middle School students will also share their science fair projects with the public.
