“Students carrying on Goddard’s legacy” — Above photo, from far left, Gerardo Rodriguez, 18, a senior watches his second generation rocket take off under the watchful eye of Celena Miranda, his teacher, for the SystemsGo class, hands-on rocketry class, at Goddard High School on Wednesday morning. SystemsGo students at GHS and also Roswell High School had their first launches earlier this fall and will have their final exam to launch third generation rockets at the Woolworth Ranch in Jal in April. Below photo, Zachary Montez, 17, a SystemsGo student, helps Ricky Vigil, 11, build a ‘spit-rocket’ with a paper for the body of the rocket and a straw as a launchpad. Vigil said watching the larger rockets was “fascinating and “amazing” at Goddard High School on Wednesday morning. Renee Maloney, (not pictured) a gifted teacher, said third through fifth graders, from her class from Berrendo Elementary School were invited to experience the launch second generation of rockets.
