Local students placed second in First Nations Launch competition

FLC students travelled to Carthage College in Wisconsin to participate in the American Indian Science & Engineering Society (AISES) division of the First Nations Launch competition. Team Skyhawks tied for second place (out of nine AISES teams) in the oral presentations and performed extremely well in the pre-launch timed event.

This competition, sponsored by NASA's Wisconsin Space Grant Consortium (WSGC), is an opportunity for students attending a Tribal College or University, or who are members of a campus AISES chapter, to design, build, and fly a rocket to be launched at the Richard Bong State Recreational Area in Kansasville, WI.
