Some young rocket engineers are at work in Tulsa. The sixth grade class at Saint Pius X School is constructing a full size mock up of a space shuttle, International Space Station, and a mission control in their gymnasium.

The shuttle and space station are made of plastic tarp and a lot of duct tape.

Students named their shuttle "Eternity," and will run a mock mission as part of their celebration of Space Week.
