Successful Subscale Launch
CRT takes to the skies with a successful subscale launch! With the fruits of all the subteams’ efforts finally coming together, things really took off this Halloween weekend. CRT is now working to propel themselves to even greater heights. Happy Halloween! And don’t eat the R-Candy!
Family Science Night at Parker Elementary School
CRT members had a blast helping out the Ithaca Sciencenter host their family science night at Parker Elementary School. From creating stomp rockets from paper and 2L bottles to seeing the stars in a portable planetarium, we had fun during every activity. Huge thanks to all the families and kids who stopped by
