Point of Interest Details

CALLING ALL MARTIANS - and Mars enthusiasts! Students, Teachers, Families, Experts - We need your help!

Wings of Eagles Discovery Center (WEDC) is about to embark on a journey to bring a Human Habitat for Mars to the Center's collection of interactive science displays. Funded by a NASA museum grant, the project which runs from January 2017 - December 2018, will be closely tied to Elmira City School District and Greater Southern Tier BOCES required curricula. Experts from NASA Kennedy Space Center and NASA Johnson Space Center will work closely with the team at WEDC, local teachers, students and families to design an out-of-this-world habitat. Estimated installation for the exhibit is early 2018. Watch the museum website (www.wingsofeagles.com) for upcoming community meetings and listening sessions where the museum staff will be gathering input from area stakeholders on what science education and early learning resources our community needs at WEDC. The first community stakeholders informational meeting is Saturday, January 28, 2017, from 11am - 12pm. Admission is free if you are attending the meeting.
