NASA Brings Aerospace Education Experience to Teen Summit
Students attending the Cuyahoga Metropolitan Housing Authorities 2nd Annual Teen Summit can take a cross-country flight or a trip to the International Space Station this week when NASA's Mobile Aerospace Education Laboratory (MAEL) comes to town.

The MAEL, operated by NASA's Glenn Research Center, Cleveland, will visit the Carl B. Stokes Social Services Mall, 6001 Woodland Ave., Cleveland, from 1 to 4 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 22. During the summit, students grade 6 to 11 will have a chance to tour the lab.

The MAEL is a state-of-the-art classroom housed in a 53-foot trailer. The lab was designed to excite students about science and mathematics. It houses several unique workstations for visitors to explore technology through hands-on/minds-on activities that model real world challenges in aerospace.

Since it became operational in 1996, the MAEL has traveled almost 100,000 miles, attending 178 events in 121 cities and 40 states. The MAEL trailer and programs were originally developed through a partnership between Cuyahoga Community College and NASA Glenn Research Center.
