News & Events
WHS Technology Education Engineering students, under the leadership of their one-of-a-kind teacher Dustin Ricci, worked with NASA engineers and astronauts to develop hardware for use on the International Space Station.
Recently, the autonomous rocket launched out of Florida carrying some of that student-designed hardware, including a locker they helped design that they signed in a ceremony here at WHS last year. It docked with the ISS about 24 hours later (the first rocket to ever self-dock!) delivering the student work to the astronauts living onboard.
The successful NASA/SpaceX Rocket Launch, with important connections to our WHS students and faculty is a spectacular culmination of their hard work. Congrats to Mr. Ricci and his students on this amazing achievement!
