A group of engineers from TriVector Services held a four-day Space Science Academy at Lincoln recently to teach students about planetary exploration, satellites and rocket science.
"We're running through a basic space science lesson," said Tim Kauffman, CEO of the company that provides engineering services to NASA.
Students learned about the history of rockets and some basic orbital mechanics. They also got to maneuver a miniature rover around the floor of the science lab at Lincoln.
