Calling all aerospace engineers, pilots, scientists, mathematicians, journalists, humanitarians, artists, astronauts and other professionals who work in the areas of flight and space.

This year, Saghalie Middle School began its journey of becoming a fully implemented STEM, project-based learning school, serving underrepresented students of color. Part of project-based learning is providing authentic experiences with authentic audiences to provide feedback.

Saghalie seventh graders are working on a “Deep Space 3000″ project and organizers are seeking authentic audiences to help provide feedback to the students on their projects. Their project entails designing a spaceship that will be in outer space for 50 years and bring healthy and happy future generations back to Earth.

Air industry professionals will be asked to either make a presentation and/or serve on a panel to judge the students’ presentations at Saghalie. Students will present their designs the week of March 31, and the top six teams will present to a panel of judges on April 4.

For more information and to volunteer, contact Deborah North at (253) 945-5016 or dnorth@fwps.org.
