North Intermediate hosted Col. Paul Lockhart, USAF, Ret., a former NASA Astronaut who flew two missions to the International Space Station in 2002. Col. Lockhart along with Space Foundation Education Specialists Bryan DeBates, Slade Bradbury, and Beth Ortiz, educated BNI students about rockets and space travel.

Students had the opportunity to pair up and build rockets out of a straw and using paper as a rudder. After the initial launch the students then reworked their design to try and improve the distance the rocket traveled.

Nordam, an aerospace manufacturing and repair firm headquartered in Tulsa, selected North Intermediate as one of the five area schools to participate in this event. Thanks to Nordam, the Tulsa Regional STEM Alliance, and the Space Foundation for providing this opportunity for our students.

In an effort to inspire the next generation of explorers, the Space Foundation and the Tulsa Regional STEM Alliance will provide FLIGHT NIGHT, Tuesday, January 30th from 6:00 to 8:00 at Hardesty Arts Center at 101 East Archer Street in Tulsa free of charge.
