ADRIAN — High school students in southeastern Michigan are expected to have an opportunity during a two-day program in January in Lenawee County to learn about the space industry, meet an astronaut and have a biology experiment selected for a future space mission. 

The Michigan Aerospace Manufacturers Association is working with Higher Orbits to have the program on Jan. 13-14, potentially at PlaneWave Instruments in Adrian, Gavin Brown, executive director of MAMA, announced Saturday at an election campaign event for state Sen. Dale Zorn, R-Onsted, at PlaneWave. The program is designed to engage students in STEM — science, technology, engineering and math — education. 

Zorn is running in the Nov. 8 election to represent the new 34th District in the Michigan House of Representatives. The district covers most of Lenawee County. Zorn cannot run again for the Senate due to term limits, but he has one more term available in the House. He is opposed by Democrat John Dahlgren of Clinton.
