Ogemaw Heights HS Students Work With NASA

Students are getting recognized today for their work in space.

Congressman John Moolenaar was at Ogemaw Heights High School thanking the students for their hard work.

That work was for NASA.

The school entered into an agreement with NASA last October as part of the High school students United with NASA to Create Hardware Program, or HUNCH.

Students were sent blueprints and special material for the parts.

They then designed the process to create the parts.

200 parts were delivered, which passed strict NASA quality controls.

“It’s amazing. Just having the satisfaction and the recognition of NASA having parts of ours up in space that we made it’s amazing,” said Jacob Fritz.

The parts are now being used on the International Space Station.

NASA was so impressed that they asked the students to make more this year.
