More than 100 students from five Irvine high schools and a dozen more from a local middle school are on a mission to launch a satellite - Irvine01

The Los Angeles Times newspaper says:

The goal is to send a 4-by-4-inch device known as a CubeSat into low Earth orbit for the first in a series of missions. It is designed to carry a camera and a solar panel propulsion system and collect data such as temperatures and the satellite's speed, direction, location and altitude. The launch is planned for March 2017.

"It's a very ambitious project," said Tinh Tran, 41, a teacher in University High School's STEM program, or science, technology, engineering and math. "This usually is done at the university or corporate level, so this is a once-in-a-generation opportunity."

Things have changed over the years

About the only extra training we could exchange was in my Junior year in High School with a girl who wanted to learn more about rural living where boys and girls would arrange one term outside of the normal schedules. Changes were limited to boys who spent one term in Home Economics and the girl would spend the term in Vocational Agriculture.
