Space Day at the University of New Orleans provided an opportunity for students in Kyle Weidenbacher’s physical science honors classes at Archbishop Rummel High School to explore career opportunities in science, technology, engineering and math through a focus on NASA space exploration.

Students rotated through a series of hands-on activities involving stomp rockets, planetary structures and a space station docking simulator.
