UTSI Students Help with East Middle School Rocket Launch
UTSI students Will Robinson and Joel Thompson (pictured above with EMS students) volunteered their time to help East Middle School with Rocket Day held for Ms. Connie Tunstill’s Science class. Robinson and Thompson helped set up the launching stations for the students and also assisted the students with surviving rockets in a drag race at the end of the day for extra fun. Ms. Tunstill praised Robinson and Thompson for their help and commented that “they were very kind and set a wonderful example for the students of what you can do with a good math and science background.” Robinson and Thompson also gave the students advice for launching and repairing their rockets which allowed all the science students to experience seeing their hard work on the rockets come to completion.
