NASA/DEVELOP project managers to lecture at UVa-Wise

Two project managers from NASA/DEVELOP will discuss rocketry in a lecture set for Nov. 5 at The University of Virginia’s College at Wise.

“Rocketry in Motion” is the theme of the discussion, which will begin at 1 p.m. in the lecture hall in the Science Center. Giovanni Colberg and Yanina Colon, the project managers, want to involve students and faculty at UVa-Wise in the exciting projects supported by NASA.

Next month, DEVELOP is working with local high school students to create a rocketry building and hold a flight workshop featuring Chuck Neff, a mechanical engineer from the West Virginia Greenbank Radio Telescope program.
