The 6th grade class at St Pius School in Tulsa wrapped up their Space Week celebrations Friday with a mock mission.
Earlier this week, the students built a mock version of a Space Shuttle, the International Space Station and mission control in their gym. They used plastic tarp, PVC pipe, and a lot of duct tape.
Science teacher Mary Jo Othon: "We throw in both math and science, measured it all out, and constructed it. Great, rolled into one."
Fridayâ€™s mock mission, with costumes and scripts, was performed in front of the entire school.
