The volunteers helped children and adults alike build projection boxes that will allow them to safely view the upcoming eclipse.
The volunteers also answered questions about the rockets and space shuttle housed in the James S. McDonnell Space Hangar at the museum.
The event was just one of the many ways Orbital ATK promotes science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education and supports the community.
Orbital ATK volunteers stopped by to visit the company's Pegasus rocket at the Udvar-Hazy Center after the event.]]>
