Students in North Middle School's eighth grade STEM classes enjoyed a recent visit from Redstone Arsenal Systems Engineer Jennifer Vollmer, ground systems lead for the flight ops team on the Space Launch System program.

Vollmer brought a rocket model and explained how the rocket enters space and what is involved in the process. Teachers report that students had great questions about the space program.
