As part of a land-grant university, the Aerospace Research Center enjoys sharing its knowledge with the local and regional communities. Opportunities for community involvement include lectures on current topics and tours for K-12 and community groups.


Faculty and research experts are sometimes available to provide lectures on current topics to local groups interested in aerospace research. Contact Assistant Director James Lawson with inquiries.


Group tours provide an up-close look at some of the center's facilities. Those interested in scheduling a visit for their group should contact Assistant Director James Lawson to request more information. Note that tours are provided during regular business hours and are at the discretion of center administration.
