TARC featured on tonight's "On the Road" (updated)

The Team America Rocketry Challenge, the finals of which are being held tomorrow in The Plains, VA,  was the subject of Steve Hartman's "On the Road" segment on tonight's CBS news. Steve traveled to Presidio, TX to interview a science teacher and her TARC team. It was a short, but nice piece and stressed the importance of motivating kids and of science education. It was nice to see rocketry on national TV! A few screen snaps follow.  (Yes, some of the team's funding came from a goat sale. LOL.)

Update:  I have since found the article on CBS News: For Texas rocketry club and their inspirational teacher, the sky is just the beginning
