Rincon Rotary to Major Tom. You've really made the grade!

Rincon Rotary to Major Tom. You've really made the grade!

Rotarian Jack Heald, teachers Kacey Obert and Hannah Sainz, and second graders from Gale Elementary show off the rockets provided by the Rincon Rotary.

Gale Elementary Second Grade Teacher Hannah Sainz submitted a proposal to the Rincon Rotary's Rotary LOCAL program asking for Rockets as a hands-on way to teach the science of air, weather, and space. The Rincon Rotary provided enough rockets for the second grade for 30% less than online retailers by partnering with Tucson's local Hobby Town USA.

The Rotary LOCAL Program's mission is to help improve the local community through educational outreach. Rotary LOCAL can provide manpower, resources from local business partners, or in some cases, direct financial support to teachers who apply for assistance.
