Idaho students compete in the American Rocketry Challenge

In May, 100 teams of kids from around the country gathered outside Washington DC and shot chicken eggs into space as part of the American Rocketry Challenge.

The middle and high-school-age kids that took part in this challenge are the best of the best, beating out 800 teams and 4,500 students to get tothe finals. And two teams from Idaho got to go this year, the Spudniks and the Rigby Rockets!

Our senior producer Samantha Wright wanted to find out more so she sat down with Rick Stoddard, a teacher at Galileo STEM Academy and student Calvin Knight to talk about the American Rocketry Challenge.

As Senior Producer of our live daily talk show Idaho Matters, I’m able to indulge my love of storytelling and share all kinds of information (I was probably a Town Crier in a past life). My career has allowed me to learn something new everyday and to share that knowledge with all my friends on the radio.
