Bill R. Johnson Career and Technology Center Visits Bottle Rocket

At Bottle Rocket, Rocketeers are encouraged to involve themselves in the community and contribute their time and expertise to STEAM education.

Recently, the Bill R. Johnson Career and Technology Center visited the Bottle Rocket space. The group of students ranging from 10th to 12th grade from Crowley High School and North Crowley High School toured our space to learn more about the inner workings of our Rocketeers.

A group of Engineers took the time to speak with the students during their visit in a vigorous Q&A session. The questions varied from our culture and projects to what opportunities there were in the industry for students their age. These engineers recommended paths for these students regarding what languages to learn and the experience needed to get to where they are.

“Don’t wait until college to get started,” one Rocketeer advised as he discussed a game he made while he was still in High School.

We can’t wait to see how this group of blossoms in the world of engineering. Maybe we will even see them in the coming years as future Rocketeers.

If you know of a group of students that are interested in speaking with our Rocketeers, please feel free to contact us.
