Pinecrest Student Work Headed to Outer Space!

Students in Mrs. English's and Ms. Willson's 3rd grade classrooms will be participating in an exciting activity in a partnership with Firefly Aerospace. Students will be composing a message about their dream of the future of space and sending these messages to engineers at Firefly Aerospace. These messages will be part of a rocket payload that will be launched into space during the first quarter of 2020!

Special thanks to Mrs. Marlene Meagher and her grandson, Jiar who is an rocket scientist at Firefly Aerospace for bringing this collaboration together!

The final launch date and time are still being finalized. The rocket launching will be streamed live. We will provide updates on the launch as they become available to us!
