ALBANY, GA (WALB) - This will be a summer of science for one thousand Albany students. This is the fourth year Albany State University is holding the NASA Science, Engineering, Mathematics, and Aerospace Academy.

Children of all ages are learning about everything from the solar system to gravitational pull. One group is even building their own robots.

Monroe High School is one of 14 sites in the nation that is hosting the month long summer program.

"It's interactive, it's fun. We have some students in third grade working with worms and the importance of recycling.

We had one student who said, 'mom, mom you can't throw that in the garbage anymore. So actually the parents love it, the kids love it," said Program Director, Taryn Thomas.

There are two weeks left in the program and students in kindergarten through tenth grade can still sign up.

Any parents who are interested in getting their children registered for this free program can call 229-430-2833. You can also click here for more information.
