Albany-- Albany State University is helping young students reach their full potential in math and science.

Saturday, ASU kicked off their Aerospace Academy for middle school aged children. It's a NASA sponsored program that's designed to increase participation in science, technology, engineering and mathematics related careers. Students will participate in activities like aircraft design, flight simulation and weather mapping. It's a way to reach kids early in their academic careers.

"Students here in the program will be able to use the same software and equipment that college students are using and they're looking at real world problems," says Lab Coordinator Wilton Dyer.

The program sessions will be held three times a year. Sessions are taught by NASA trained Dougherty County teachers and ASU faculty members.

To get your child involved or for more information, contact Karen Carter at 229-430-2833.
