FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT)- Science Central announced Thursday they're one of 18 science centers across the country that was given a $2500 mini grant from NASA. 

The money will be used to develop interactive video conferencing webinars for K-12 students with special abilities. 

"We work with the students. We actually interact with them face to face through the internet, and we're going to be doing it on Exoplanets. They're going to be designing their own Exoplanet," said Mary Ibe, education director at Science Central. 

The students will also get the opportunity to present their projects. 

To sign up for the program, contact Justin McAfee at 260-424-2400.
