Day 5 – Friday

Wow! Graduation day already!

Both teams gathered under the Pathfinder rocket this morning to hear some parting words from the director of Space Camp and their team leaders. 

The graduation ceremony started with the playing/signing of the national anthem.     

Each graduating astronaut received a certificate and encouraging words as they return to their home states.   Here, Team Von Lions are affixed upon the stage, ready to graduate.  Way to go, Amber and Brenda! Congratulations, Alex! Whoa, whoa, whoa! Please return to the stage, Team Von Lions, you’re the Most Outstanding Team of the week! 

 Annnnnd, not to be outdone, the Jolly Goddards secured the Outstanding Rocketry award, beating all of the other teams in brainstorming, designing, engineering and launching the best rockets of the week.    

The heartfelt goodbyes and “we’ll stay in touch via Facebook” graced the grounds of the U.S. Space and Rocket Center.
