A group of teachers and students from the Indiana School for the Blind and Visually Impaired in Indianapolis and Indian Creek High School in Trafalgar, Ind., visited NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md., last week.
As part of their week-long stay in the D.C. Metro area, they participated in tours of the integration and testing facilitates and the clean rooms at the Greenbelt campus, as well as tours of the Wallops Flight Facility in Wallops Island, Va. The program was part of an effort to expose blind and visually impaired students to careers in science, technology, engineering and math.
