The entrance gates will be wide open as well as the doors to laboratories and research facilities as NASA Lewis Research Center hosts an Open House celebrating NASA's 40th Anniversary. This free event will be held Saturday and Sunday, October 10 and 11, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
This is an opportunity to take a behind-the-scenes look at the ongoing aeronautics and space research NASA Lewis is working on now that will take us into the 21st century. Visitors will see research aircraft, advanced spacecraft designs, high-tech satellite communications, wind tunnels and drop towers. In addition, many of the Center's scientists and engineers will be on hand to share information and answer questions.
Visitors of all ages will also have a lot to see and do through the Discovery FEST (Future Engineers and Scientists in Training) program. At least 20 separate science experiments will be conducted in tents throughout the Center. Visitors will have opportunities to create paper airplanes and effervescent rockets and expand their knowledge of math and science through interactive computer activities.
Other featured attractions include:
Food and beverages can be purchased, along with Lewis and NASA merchandise. Each visitor will also receive a memento.
