Heyworth High School – Heyworth, IL

Heyworth High School's Backyard Geology Report

Chris (teacher): I have been teaching science for seven years, five of them in Heyworth, IL. I have lived in many places including Pittsburgh, PA and Riga, Latvia. In August of 2003 I graduated from the University of North Dakota with an MS in Space Studies. I am very excited about this opportunity to share my passion for science and space exploration with my students.

Ashley (student): I am a 16 year old sophomore at Heyworth High School, and I enjoy the outdoors, listening to music, shopping. I am interested in the ASIP program, because I would like to find out new things about Mars, and outside of Earth.

Sarah (student): As a sophomore in high school, my interests continually grow and change. One thing that has never changed about me is my love for science. Ever since I was a little girl I have done nothing but wonder what was on the other side of the stars at night. Weird questions like that have fascinated me my whole life and there is only one way to find out, and that is through science. I have also always had this amazing love to learn. Well, in some classes any ways. The reason I want to be a part of this program is because this is a once in a life time opportunity and I will never have this chance again in my whole life. For any one to pass this opportunity up should be committed.
