Rocketry Teaches about STEM

My boss, Dr. Fontenot, sent an email this morning that contained the link below. She said in her email, “The video from NASA demonstrates that a rocketry program teaches students about STEM in a rigorous environment. Students not only learn how to apply science and math and engage in engineering design, they also learn communication and teamwork skills.” I can’t think of any way to say it better. Watch the video! It’s very inspiring, and it explains why our Center is so excited to be involved in rocketry.

By the way, Shella Condino and her students from our Presidio Academy are shown on the video.
