MUREP Aerospace Academy (MAA)
The Minority University Research Education Project (MUREP) Aerospace Academy (MAA) is designed to expose historically underrepresented youth, grades K-12, to multiple hands-on activities related to the fields of science, engineering, mathematics, and aerospace professions. The ultimate goal is to increase the number of students in the identified populations who enroll in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) academic majors in college.
About MAA at Tri-C:
The MUREP Aerospace Academy (MAA) engages K-12 students on Saturday mornings at Tri-C's Metropolitan Campus in three 8-week sessions each academic year. While students are attending classes, parents and guardians are invited to participate in the MAA Family Cafe' to experience interactive STEM activities and guest speaker presentations that support whole family learning and prepares students for college or technical fields.
MAA scholars attend one session during the academic year and are welcome to return for a MAA Summer Session .
MAA offers fun STEM education hands-on activities while focusing on aerospace, earth science, and robotics. This grant-funded program is open to ALL students in ALL districts in Cuyahoga County, including students who are home-schooled.
