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 offers fun STEM education hands-on activities while focusing on Aerospace and Earth Science. This grant-funded program is open to ALL students in ALL districts in Cuyahoga County, including students who are home-schooled. MAA activities are offered at no cost to all participants.
Applications are currently being accepted for:
Winter 2017: January 14-March 4 OR Spring 2017: March 18-May 13
MAA students attend for eight consecutive Saturdays, 9:00AM - 1:30PM (excluding Easter weekend).
