HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) — The Cosmosphere in Hutchinson will receive about $650,000 from NASA to promote science, technology engineering and math education.

NASA announced this week that the Cosmosphere was one of three applicants to receive funds after 43 groups submitted proposals.

The Hutchinson News reports the Cosmosphere’s $650,594 will be used to refurbish 12 historic Apollo-era mission control consoles that will be used in traveling interactive exhibits for classes that will be offered free to Kansas students.
