The awesome Douglas Byrd High School Academy of Green Tech Juniors helped Sherwood Park Elementary School students launch science experiments into near space.  The Sherwood Park Bear went 17.7 miles up before going on a spacewalk!  AoGT students serve as mission control for county schools and allow them to launch into space. Sherwood Park sent up some marshmallows and a wet sponge (ask the chem teacher or me for an explanation when you see us).  The payload returned to earth near Bentonville in some trees in dense woods behind a kind woman named Jamie’s home.  She let us cut down a small tree (not a normal practice) to get to the payload.

Douglas Byrd High School Students got a chance to participate in the HBCU College & Scholarship Fair at Smith Recreational Center. Over 50 representatives were on hand to speak to students about college and scholarship opportunities! A big shout out to Ms. Temple Walls for putting this together and Mrs. Vera Nickens for transporting students to the event!
