Rocket guys advance

“It’s pretty cool knowing that we’re among the top rocket builders in the nation,” Cureau said.

Kyle Cureau, Peter Ferguson and John McGee are the guys behind the blast off. Cureau, Ferguson and McGee were one of the 100 selected teams. Eight hundred and fifty teams competed.

“It’s nice to know that all those late nights are finally paying off,” Ferguson said.

The guys head to Virginia on May 10th. But before they go, they’ll do a few unofficial test runs. They’ve expressed thanks to Wolcott resident Scott Hickson for all of his help.

The trio still is in need of funding.

“We know that we have the knowledge, skills and abilities to win at nationals. If we can get the adequate resources and funding, then nothing stands between us and first place, ” McGee said.

If you would like to help these students, or if you want to find out more information, please call instructor Mindy Larsen at 926-3015.
