NASA Ambassador visits South Parkersburg Library

By  | 

PARKERSBURG, W.Va. (WTAP)- Those interested in space and science got a special treat at the South Parkersburg Library today.

A NASA Ambassador stopped by for a presentation.

Parkersburg native Tyler Hines gave presentations throughout the day explaining NASA’s Voyager Missions.

Hines has been a part of NASA for many years and enjoys sharing his wealth of knowledge about the organization.

Those that listened to his presentation also got the opportunity to ask other NASA-related questions. Even some free NASA stickers were included.

Library manager, Lindsay Place, shared her appreciation for Tyler. "He is somebody really good that we like to have over here because he gets kids, and all ages actually, really energized about not just science but NASA and it is something we definitely need in this area."

Tyler Hines, NASA Ambassador, explains why he gives presentations. "I've been told that a lot of people don't get to interact with a lot of these types of things, and I've gone to schools, elementary, middle, high school, and it is incredible to see the outcome. And a lot of the people who come in are just so excited to learn about something like this."

Hines says he plans to make stops at other West Virginia high schools throughout the year.
