Students from the Northeast Academy of Aerospace and Advanced Technologies joined members of the Elizabeth City State University Aviation Science program as Chancellor Thomas Conway unveiled the ECSU NASA Mobile STEM Lab for the first time.
Measuring 40-feet long, the lab consists of at least 10 stations, each designed to offer students the opportunity to experience cutting edge technology firsthand. The stations cover aviation, technology, robotics, and more.
“This mobile lab is critically important to what we as a university intend to do,” said Chancellor Conway during the unveiling ceremony. “Education should be fun and interactive and that is what we are going to do.”
After NEAAT students had the opportunity to tour the mobile lab, it was driven first to nearby River Road Middle School, and then later to Elizabeth City Middle School. Students at both Elizabeth City-area middle schools were able to tour the lab and find out what is in store for them.
