RIT and RMSC win $600,000 from NASA
Funding will support ‘NASA Family Day’ events
The Rochester Museum & Science Center and Rochester Institute of Technology are on a mission to inspire and engage preteens and their families with a program highlighting NASA science and technology.
A $598,185 grant from NASA will fund the development of six “NASA Family Day” events at the museum. Themes featuring NASA missions, technology, discoveries and imagery will include the Earth as a Planet, Life in the Universe, Superhuman Physical Achievement, Communicating On and Off the Planet, Earth in the Solar System and Major Feats of Engineering. The project was funded as part of NASA’s $6.2 million Competitive Program for Science Museums and Planetariums.
