CLEVELAND - NASA's Glenn Research Center has Science Days this week to engage students from Ohio schools in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
The events Monday through Wednesday are in collaboration with Lake Ridge Academy in North Ridgeville.
NASA astronaut Gregory Johnson will share his experiences from his two space shuttle missions. There will also be presentations about the Mars Curiosity rover mission, exploring the solar system, and from NASA Glenn engineers. There is also a traveling NASA exhibit with computer kiosks and hands-on workstations about science and technology, and quizzes and experiments.
Also available will be a "Picture Yourself in Space" photo booth where students can get a free photo taken as an astronaut.
The center is named for Ohio space hero John Glenn.
