After seeing the control center where rockets are launched, students have decided that summer camp is literally out of this world.
The Fairfield-Suisun School District STEM Camp for science, technology, engineering and math is generating a lot of excitement among students who want to pursue a career in space travel or work for NASA.
“I want to create the rockets to send man to another solar system,” said Grange Middle School student Ayden Davanzo.
Other places the students will tour include the California State University Maritime Academy in Vallejo, The Tech Museum of Innovation in Silicon Valley and an aerospace company in Santa Maria.
Andrea Frische, the mother of 12 year old James, is very appreciative of the opportunity for her son.
“There is nothing like this,” she said. “It is just the most amazing thing they’re doing for these kids.”
