Engage with NASA Glenn

grc 2023 cn 00022

At NASA’s Glenn Research Center in Cleveland, we pride ourselves on making the seemingly impossible, possible. From creating more fuel-efficient jet engines and exploring advances in air mobility, to enhancing radio frequency and optical communications technology, Glenn plays an important role in many of NASA’s most prestigious missions.

Each year, Glenn highlights its research and technology at a variety of events across the county. We invite you to engage with us during our 2024 outreach season to learn more. Visit us at the following events:

Jan. 15: Martin Luther King Jr. Day at Great Lakes Science Center — Cleveland, Ohio
Join us as we celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day with Great Lakes Science Center on Jan. 15 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Learn about NASA’s Fluids and Combustion Facility on the International Space Station and the microgravity research NASA Glenn supports. Eclipse glasses will be available at this event.

Jan. 20 – 21: Monster Jam! — Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Feb. 17-19 : Monster Jam! — Cleveland, Ohio
