The program last Wednesday was presented by Rebekah Hyatt, the executive director of Systems Go. This is a high school rocketry program that utilizes science, technology, engineering, and mathematics courses (STEM). Is is an independent program that is available to any high school.  
Systems Go first program started at Fredericksburg High School in 1996, and has expanded to seventy eight schools in several states. One of the big differences between this program and the traditional high school classroom experience is that failures are used as learning opportunities. Rocket launching doesn't always go perfect, and students learn from their mistakes. They work with budgets and timelines, and have to prove mathematically how their rockets will work. Students also gain experience by writing technical reports documenting their rocketry project.
