WALKER, Mo. - A Southwest Missouri school is giving kids a chance to explore the final frontier.
More than thirty students from the Hume School District visited Northeast Vernon County High School in Walker Wednesday for World Space Week. The kids got a chance to learn about how gravity works, see a movie in the school's planetarium and even practice communication skills they will need for a mission to Mars. The entire project was designed and presented by four high school seniors at Northeast Vernon County, and they even gave the kids a chance to plan our first colony on Mars.
"Where they first start building the buildings. the second one is where your waste is starting to produce, and it's helping the plants grow, and then your third one is the overall stage, where there's life on mars," says senior Kiley Gerster.
The plan is for NEVCHS to host more schools in the next couple of weeks for the demonstration.
