Johnson Space Center, and returning home

Today unfortunately marked the last day of our trip, but it was no less exciting than every other day. We went and visited the NASA Johnson Space Center!

We were able to see everything from a Shuttle Carrier Aircraft used to build the Internation Space Station, a replica Delorean in the exhibition, to seeing the actual control room for the Apollo 11 mission, and seeing all the controls and screens as they were in 1969!

Afterwards, came the sad part of the trip, returning home. We all had so much fun throughout the trip, from meeting teams from all around the world, competing at an amazing event, to visiting a NASA center and seeing the Gulf of Mexico, this was an amazing trip, and we hope to do it again next year.

Trip to Galveston!

With the World Championships now concluded, the team decided to head down to Galveston to have some fun and relax. Upon arrival, we had an amazing lunch at a local restaurant.

We then decided to enjoy ourselves at an amusement park, with the majority of the team deciding to go on some rides!

But much more importantly, we found a restaurant named “Bubba Gump Shrimp Co,” named after the movie “Forest Gump,” which our team deeply enjoys.

Today was an amazing day to slow down, relax, and take a breather after all of the excitement of the World Championships. We look forward to visiting the Johnson Space Center tomorrow before returning home!
