Computerized lab to interest kids in science, math

Albany- Our country doesn't have enough young people training to work as scientists and it's becoming a crisis.

That's one reason for the new Aerospace Education Lab at Albany State University. It was dedicated today in the Pendergrast Library. The NASA program is a partnership between ASU and the Dougherty County School System to get students involved in science, math and engineering.

"We want to get these students more interested in the sciences so that we have a pool to continue the good work that NASA has been doing in terms of the research into space," said Dr. Granville Wrensford.

Middle and high school students will use the computerized classroom during a Saturday academy to encourage their interest in science-related fields.
