NASA Chief Technologist, Congressman Fattah Visit X-Car Team At West Philadelphia High School Monday
WASHINGTON -- NASA Chief Technologist Bobby Braun and Congressman Chaka Fattah (D-Pa.) will visit the West Philadelphia High School X-Car Team at 3 p.m. EDT on Monday, June 7. The team is part of a student after-school club who built an international prize-winning experimental gas-saving car.

Braun's visit emphasizes the space agency's interest in student teams, private companies of all sizes and citizen-inventors' creative solutions to problems of interest to NASA and the nation.

Reporters are invited to attend the event at the West Philadelphia High School Automotive Annex, located at 221 S. Hanson Street, between 48th and 49th Street, entering from Walnut Street.
