Media invited to cover ‘NASA Days’ kickoff at Boys And Girls Club Thursday, Aug. 12

What: NASA tutors are heating students' interests up through science experiments and helping them understand Science, Technology, Engineering, Analysis, and Mathematics, or "STEAM" — the core requirements for a career in space. NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala., is teaming with the James A. Lane Boys and Girls Club in Huntsville for "NASA Days" — an effort to help club members with math and science and to inspire the next generation of explorers. Every third Thursday, Marshall Center volunteers will demonstrate science experiments, and they will be there every Thursday to tutor the children.

News media are invited to the first "NASA Day" Thursday, Aug. 12. Media will have the opportunity to video and photograph the science demonstrations, as well as interview club members and officials.

Who: Among those available for interviews will be NASA engineer Jerry Shelby of the Marshall Center and Liz Rhodes, director of the James A. Lane Boys and Girls Club.

When: Thursday, Aug. 12
3:30–5:30 p.m. CDT

Where: James A. Lane Boys and Girls Club
215 Abingdon Ave. in Huntsville
