  • Astronaut to inspire students

    Model-rocket launches, robot-building contests and a visit by a former NASA astronaut are in the stars during Utah Space/STEM Week April 20-24 in Davis School District.

    Brian Duffy Former space shuttle astronaut Brian Duffy will talk to about 2,200 elementary school children during two presentations Thursday, April 23 at the Davis High auditorium. He will speak about his four shuttle missions at 9:30 a.m. and again at noon, said Donnalee Trease.  Trease teaches sixth-grade at Creekside Elementary and coordinates the district’s Space/STEM Week activities.

    ROTC students will perform a flag ceremony and former “The Voice” contestant Tanner Linford, a Davis High student, will sing the national anthem before Duffy’s talk.

    Duffy is Orbital ATK’s vice president of Johnson Space Center exploration programs. Before that, he was in leadership roles at Lockheed Martin. He had a 16-year career with NASA, and was mission commander on two of his four space shuttle missions, logging in more than 977 hours in space. He has logged in about 5,000 hours of flight time in more than 25 different aircraft.

    In other events, Creekside students will learn about drones around 11:30-1 p.m. on Monday, April 20. Volunteers from the Hill Aerospace Museum will visit with students from about 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. Tuesday, April 21 to talk about the science behind flight.

    Creekside will also hold its rocket launch, weather permitting, at 9:15 a.m. Friday, April 24.

    In addition, students are being challenged to build a robot with 15 household items or less. Robots will be on display Friday.

  • Juniors learn about trial that sparked 

    civil rights movement
     
    The savage killing of 14-year-old Emmett Till in 1955’s Deep South, and the acquittal of his white killers, galvanized a movement whose echoes still sound today.

    civil rights panel Till’s story is one that will never die, agreed a panel of experts who talked to Davis High juniors about the case and its far-ranging implications on racial intolerance.

    The panel — part of the school’s lecture series on the civil rights movement — included Wheeler Parker, a cousin of Till’s; author Chris Crowe, who penned several books about the case; historian and author Devery Anderson; and FBI special agent Dale Killinger. Killinger worked on the case when it was reopened in 2004.
