This past summer four Fairchild students Natalie Colon (Aero), Marie Frese (Bio), Julie London (Aero), and Kenyon North (Aero) traveled abroad to England. This educational and cultural experience was funded by the British American Business Foundation. This foundation specializes in awarding scholarships to students who have a track record of academic achievement and community leadership to attend the ACS International School - Cobham. Stephen Maltby Chairman of the foundation was instrumental in the selection process. He conducted interviews with each of the prospective candidates and informed the families of their selection. Mr. Maltby walked the students and their families through the process and answered any questions regarding the trip. The trip itself was roughly two weeks long and the students traveled to many famous landmarks such as the London Eye, Stonehenge, The Westminster Abbey, and many more.

There are 55 teams from across the country that are going to help NASA gather information on the upcoming eclipse and Fairchild Wheeler's Engineering School sent three students on the Connecticut team which will be in Paducah, Kentucky. The team is sending up a camera 80 thousand feet and will also be collecting data for environmental experiments.

The Student Spaceflight Experiment Program (SSEP) Mission 11 was launched from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida on Sunday. One of the 21 student experiments on board came from four students at the Aerospace/Hydrospace Engineering and Physical Sciences School at the Fairchild Wheeler Interdistrict Magnet Campus in Bridgeport.
The team included Jucar Lopes of Milford, Uchenna Oguagha of Bridgeport, Kiana Laude of Trumbull and Raysa Leguizamon of Bridgeport. Entitled "Microgravity's Effect on Immune System Response of Model Species: An Interaction between Daphnia magna and Pasteuria ramosa," the experiment looks at the effects of microgravity on the human immune system.

Uchenna Oguagha, an Aero senior, represented the campus at the Bridgeport Public Education Fund's (BPEF) Annual Fall fundraising event, where she gave an amazing heartfelt and insightful speech to a packed hall at the Bridgeport's Holiday Inn. At the end of her remarks she received a standing ovation.

Physical Sciences, Engineering and Aerospace/Hydrospace Science High School
Physical Sciences, Engineering and Aerospace/Hydrospace Science High School

In this STEM-based program, students will learn the practical application of science and math to solve problems. Learning to use software, interacting with regional industry and collaborating with state and local universities, students will research, design and develop creative solutions for exploration and discovery.

Aerospace Student Council
Aerospace Student Council will meet in Room E118 Thursdays after school

The mission of the Student Council is to allow students to become responsible leaders within our community and nurture in all students the traits of good citizenship.

We will accomplish this mission by doing the following:
  1. Serve as a source of communication between the student body and the faculty and administration of the school.
  2. Provide opportunities for students to participate in the government of the school while promoting and maintaining high standards of individual responsibility, cooperation and maturity among students.
  3. Share in the development, promotion, coordination, and management of school activities.
  4. Help others in our community in order to bring awareness about those less fortunate.
