    “I was really attracted to Carthage for its amazing STEM program and the close relationship with NASA. I am a physics major with a concentration in astrophysics, so their relationship with NASA and other companies who are STEM and physics centered assured me that I would have many awesome opportunities all four years that would prepare me for when I graduate.”

    “I had the opportunity of being the project manager of the Rocket Team through Carthage’s relationship with the Wisconsin Space Grant Consortium. This was such a fun experience and taught me so many new things about rocketry as well as simple things like what it means to be a part of a team!”

    “I had the opportunity to accompany one of the experiments I worked on with the Wisconsin Space Grant Consortium to Texas to see it launched on a Blue Origin New Shephard rocket!
