Hi:

   Just to let you all know that on Saturday, May 17th, nearly 500 students
from Wisconsin and Michigan participated in the 2nd Annual
Rockets-for-Schools event in Sheboygan, Wisconsin.
   This involved the launch of two Super Loki rockets on a sub-orbital
flight to an altitude of about 35 miles. Students were divided into launch,
safety, tracking, communication, and recovery teams. The inside of the
Sheboygan Armory was set-up as a mission control where students and parents
could watch the results on screens.
   The two-day event also included a talk by a NASA astronaut, and numerous
student rocket launches.
