Review from Trong Bui, NASA Armstrong Flight Research Center: We are honored to have received an outstanding review from Trong Bui of NASA Armstrong Flight Research Center. His words truly reflect the positive impact and excellent interactions that took place during our Aero Fair sessions at Ascension Village. The students' attentiveness, behavior, and insightful questions demonstrated their keen interest in aerospace. We take great pride in providing a nurturing and engaging afterschool program, ensuring the students feel comfortable, safe, and well-cared for. We are grateful for the personal attention, enthusiasm, and care exhibited by Priya, Therma, and Chitra making Ascension Village stand out as a top-notch institution in Trong Bui's experience.
Over three days, our curriculum focused on various themes, providing students with a comprehensive understanding of NASA's Armstrong Flight Research Center and essential aerospace concepts. The curriculum included engaging topics such as the history of NASA's Armstrong Flight Research Center, the four forces of flight, Newton's laws of motion, and a deeper dive into select NASA projects. This immersive program aimed to inspire young minds and ignite their passion for aerospace exploration.
We are excited to continue nurturing the next generation of aerospace engineers and scientists, but we can't do it alone. Organizing an event of this magnitude requires significant resources and funding. We invite our community to join us in this important mission by contributing donations that will enable us to provide a fun and engaging experience for the students while showing your generous support for Ascension Village. Together, we can make a lasting impact and inspire young minds to reach for the stars.

Our Review from NASA Engineer Trong Bui:
“I was particularly impressed with the excellent interactions we had during our Aero Fair sessions at Ascension Village. The scholars were very attentive (with eyes wide open!), well-behaved, and showed great interest in all things aerospace with their insightful questions which truly helped in enhancing our course presentations. It was also apparent to me that Ascension Village provided a great afterschool program for the students. The students seemed to be very well taken care of over there with comfortable and safe surroundings and frequent healthy snacks to boot!
Priya, Therma, and Chitra should be complemented for their personal attention, enthusiasm, and the great care that they showed in looking after these students in their program. I love it also, that they put all the students (as well as us presenters) at ease with all the positive vibes that they gave us all throughout our interactions. I would put Ascension Village in the top 10% of the schools that I have personally worked with so far including the various academies and magnet schools. They are really performing a great service for their communities there at Ascension Village".
