Manufacturing Day at Glenn

Manufacturing Day, hosted by NASA Glenn’s Office of STEM Engagement, aims to educate high-school students about careers in the manufacturing field while encouraging an interest in science, technology, engineering, and math. Students will have an opportunity to see how teams of engineers, researchers, and technicians work together to design and prototype aeronautics and space hardware. Students will participate in a career discussion, tour world-class facilities, and partake in hands-on activities, including robotics and virtual and augmented reality.
