Middle school students experienced hands-on technology-infused learning engagement activities developed though six years of NASA funding at Discover Park on Dec 1. Areas featured were: a) solar system explorations through smartphone virtual reality applications;  b) introducing computational thinking through piloting drones; and c) immersive virtual reality for space explorations through Oculus Quest II simulations adapted from NASA Goddard's STEAM Innovation Lab's productions for VIVE. Students also toured 2-D and 3-D design and printing facilities maintained for NASA funded activities by IITTL.

Plans are underway for bringing Wedgewood Geek Squad back to Discovery Park for a Saturday space science camp during the spring of 2022.
