MAMA (Michigan Aerospace Manufacturers Association) Series
THIS EVENT IS BEING RESCHEDULED. WE WILL LET YOU KNOW AS SOON AS WE HAVE NEW DATES. The dates on here now are just placeholders so the event stays visible until we have new dates.
Event will run all 3 days June 21-23 all day from 9am-5:30pm but not overnight. Students must attend ALL days. Open to students from anywhere in grades 9-12 (including rising 9th graders.) As part of the experience, students will visit Kennedy Space Center with Space professionals.
During this challenging time when many students may be missing classes we hope that our Go For Launch! program can provide (once safe to do so) much needed STEM, teamwork, and communication engagement. Should we need to change the dates of a program due to this constantly evolving situation, we will reschedule not cancel. We are committed to supporting all these stellar students.
