would like to participate in the NASA learning experience because it will give me a chance to learn about space exploration and my favorite subject science.  When I grow up I want to become an engineer.  Thousands of engineers work at the NASA Glenn Research center in Ohio.  These engineers design, develop and test innovative technology for aeronautics and spacecraft.  By visiting the NASA Glenn Research Center I will be able to see and learn more about the work environment of an engineer.

I want to be and Engineer when I grow up because being a Engineer is all about making things that people can use.  These things make life better for everyone.  People make decisions everyday in life as simple as what clothes we should wear or what we want to eat.  But as na Engineer I will make big decisions like if a bridge can cold a car or if it will collapse.  In our world there is always new things with science and technology so they’ll always be problems to solve.  When I become a Engineering I will be able to see that I am making a difference in the world.

However the NASA Glenn Research Center is not the only reason I would like to visit the state of Ohio.  Ohio has many landmarks that I am interested in learning more about like the Cleveland Arcade, The Covington and Cincinnati Suspension Bridge, and did you know Ohio is the American inventor Mr. Thomas Edison birth place.  And to be able to visit the state will be a life changing experience for me.

I believe that I should be selected to participate in the NASA Learning experience because I am very eager to learn more about science and engineering.  To be able to see hands on what NASA has to offer not just me but the environment as well.  This experience will be the opportunity of a life time.
