LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - The Naranjo Museum of Natural History is bringing pieces of the Johnson Space Center in Houston right here to East Texas.
That's only one aspect to look forward to at the Space, Game, and Tech Expo. The event, celebrating space exploration, gaming, and technology, will have NASA exhibits like real spacesuits, guided tours, and even a sci-fi costume contest.
There will also be special NASA visitors associated with the Orion Program. Joe and Elizabeth LeBlanc will also share with visitors how to get jobs with NASA.
Dr. Neal Naranjo shared with us his excitement for the expo.
"Over here, we show things that we benefit from in our daily lives. Cell phones, how to detect lead poisoning, early breast cancer detection, even foldable walkers for elderly is all from NASA," said Dr. Neal Naranjo, CEO of The Naranjo Museum of Natural History.
The Expo will go on Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.. Admission is $10.
The event schedule will be released soon. Aside from all the scientific fun and gaming vendors, the expo will have the Old Souls Food truck as the food vendor.
