These Houston-area high schoolers are launching rockets a mile high — but it’s not just about the rockets

They even launched a rocket LIVE on #HTownRush on Friday morning!

ANAHUAC, Texas — There have been so many firsts in Houston when it comes to space exploration -- we are “Space City” after all.

And the next generation of rocket scientists could come from Anahuac ISD, not far from Houston. 

The talented students in Anahauc launch rockets with one-pound payloads about a mile into the air.

Watch Friday morning's live set-up and launch here on YouTube:

The high schoolers are part of an education group called SystemsGo.

Coach Moore says the program is designed to teach kids about the science, technology, engineering and mathematics required to build rockets. But the program isn’t just for future rocket scientists.

Moore says the students learn how to solve problems and how to work as a team, which are skills everyone needs.
