Seattle museum gets $805K from NASA for science edDecember 19, 2013 @ 4:12 pm
SEATTLE (AP) - NASA has announced the Pacific Science Center will be one of a handful of educational museums to get money to build on their informal science education program.
The Seattle museum has won more than $800,000 for a five-year project to enhance teen and adult knowledge of remote sensing technology. They want to raise awareness of the way airplanes and satellites take photographs and collect data to aid research in fields such as environmental science.
The new programs are aimed at encouraging students in grades 3 through 12 to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and math.
The Pacific Science Center is one of six museums and four NASA visitor centers sharing nearly $7.7 million in grants or cooperative agreements.
