CMS competes at Fiesta Bowl Aerospace Challenge

Throughout the 2015-16 school year, various seventh-grade science students at J.O. Combs Middle School prepared projects (with the assistance of their teachers – Aaron Erwin and Barbara Rogers) to participate in the annual Honeywell Fiesta Bowl Aerospace Challenge at the Arizona State University (ASU) Polytechnic campus, featuring Microsoft Mission Control.

The Aerospace Challenge was created to help middle school grade students enhance their space knowledge by creating a plan and physical model of an international lunar base. Students work in groups of three to five to complete the project. This special project allowed these students to improve their team-building, communication, problem solving, and critical decision-making skills. Students endured several rounds of rigorous judging at the ASU campus by teams of professionals in the science industry. The participating students from CMS are proud to share that they were recognized for two awards – Best Team Name and Best Use of Recycled Materials.

Group 1: Best Team Name “Lunar Legends”: Tydon Bullard, Stone McPike-Woodrey, Kaylee Caballero Hass, Lucas Dimas
Group 2: Best Use of Recycled Materials: Olivia Newell, Darian Vigneux, Jameson Schmidt, Kyler Lenzmeier
