Educators from the National Institute of Aerospace (NIA) participated in the 3rd Annual STEM Symposium held at the Hampton Performing and Creative Arts Center in Hampton, VA on Saturday, April 22, 2017. More than 80 students and many of their families attended the event, sponsored by Time Out 4U, a local nonprofit youth engineering program committed to increasing underrepresented youth’s interest in STEM education and careers. 

The NIA educators facilitated two hands-on workshops and a closing presentation to share NASA eClips™ videos and activities related to solar eclipses and to disseminate information about the upcoming Hampton Roads Maker Faire.
