Pilibos Students Attend Rocket Launch

IMG_6660.JPGLast week the 12th grade AP Physics class visited Vandenberg Air Force Base on an overnight field trip to view the early morning launch of the United Launch Alliance (ULA) Delta IV rocket followed by a tour of the Vandenberg Space and Missile Technologies Education Center. This once-in-a-lifetime opportunity allowed the students to get a hands-on experience of what goes into missile testing and satellite tracking and to be "rocket scientists" for a day! 

See a glimpse of what our students experienced by viewing the video below.
