"On behalf of the International Federation of Professional & Technical Engineers (IFPTE), AFL-CIO, I would like to present your students with the enclosed check in the amount of $1,000 to help support their trip to White Sands, New Mexico to see their "magnets" experiment launch and to participate fully in associated pre- and postlaunch activities."
Editor's note: The IFPTE is to be especially commended for putting their money squarely where their mouth is.
Note from Carolyn Bushman:
"Dear Keith: I want to write and thank you and nasawatch.com. We have gotten enough money for the trip to New Mexico. I want to say thank you to everyone who helped raise money. I even have enough money that I will be able to pay for the food. Everyone across the nation has been so gracious. My heart is full. My students are very excited. We will be writing to you to tell about the trip.
I am also sending thank you letters to everyone who helped contribute. Thanks again for helping make the trip possible. We look forward to sharing our trip of a lifetime with all of you."
