“I encourage all of our interested students to join us for the second year of our SpaceEagles STEM Space Science and Engineering Program, which promises to be even better than year one,” encouraged ALCS head of school and STEM Rocketry mentor-teacher, Dr. Vance Nichols. “It is a unique opportunity available to very few students in the nation.”
The STEM program is part of The Eagle Center for Creativity and Innovation (TECCI) at ALCS, the school’s incubator for arts, sciences, and entrepreneurial endeavor for ALCS students, all in Christian context.
