“Choosing to do the Aerospace Challenge was one of the best decisions I have ever made,” said seventh grader Bianca Feix, a member of Team Genesis. “I have learned so many things. I have not only learned knowledge about the moon but other things, like teamwork and friendship. I have found another family, an Aerospace family.”
