ADRIAN — The vast possibilities awaiting people in outer space came to Lenawee County for two days Friday and Saturday.
Middle and high school students were the beneficiaries of a space exploration program called Go for Launch! Lenawee, which was at the Lenawee Intermediate School District Tech Center in Adrian and also involved a Saturday field trip across North Main Street to the PlaneWave Instruments campus.
The two-day program, which was open to students in eighth through 12th grades throughout Lenawee County and the surrounding region, was brought to the county through the efforts of Higher Orbits, a nonprofit organization that creates experiential learning labs for secondary students across the United States with a focus on space exploration. The program is supported by the Michigan Aerospace Manufacturers Association (MAMA), state Rep. Dale Zorn, R-Onsted, Avon Machining, Cognition Science and Discovery Center, and others.
