Ventura County Students to Build NASA Hardware in New Partnership

High school students at the Ventura County Office of Education’s Career Education Center in Camarillo will have the chance to build hardware that could end up in space thanks to a new partnership with NASA. The Ventura County Board of Education Monday approved an agreement with NASA that will make the NASA HUNCH program available to local students. HUNCH (High Schools United with NASA to Create Hardware) is a nationwide program in which students build equipment to NASA’s specifications using advanced tools. Some of the equipment is selected to be used in NASA systems and on the International Space Station. A kick-off event for this unique program will be held on Thursday.

WHEN: Thursday, March 2, 2017 from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm
