The NASA Wallops Flight Facility is holding a 70th
Anniversary Open House on Saturday, June 27th from 10am to 4pm. This is
the 70th anniversary of the first rocket launch from NASA Wallops. It
promises to be an exciting day, with a wide variety of activities,
presentations, and exhibits including static aircraft displays, a robotics
demonstration, the U.S. Navy’s Top 40 Band and other entertainment, mission
area tours (Range Control, Scientific Balloons, Sounding Rockets, and
Engineering Labs), and model rocket launches.
** The robotics demonstration will include exhibits for the
FIRST programs (Jr.FLL, FLL, FTC, and FRC) as well as VEX Robotics. If
you are thinking about going to the Open House AND you are an FLL Coach or team
parent, please let me know if you and possibly some of your team members are
able to spend some time with us at the Open House answering questions from the
public about FLL and demonstrating your robot while sharing your project.
We would be overjoyed to have you join us!
Regardless of whether you are able to lend a hand with FLL
outreach, please consider coming to the Open House and celebrating the June 27,
1945 first launch at the NASA Wallops Flight Facility on Virginia’s Eastern
Shore. The facility does not have a physical address, but it is near the Virginia-Maryland line on the Eastern Shore (you can look up driving directions online).
