Pacific Missile Range Facility Field Trip

I'm going to back track a little to before spring break.  I have not had any time to write lately because I've been so busy with my graduate classes. A few weeks ago I set up a field trip to the Pacific Missile Range Facility (PMRF) for the elementary students in my school.  I've been trying to expose students to future potential job opportunities and to make them more aware of what is around them.  We had a great time on the trip.  They took us to the fire station and let the kids climb into the fire trucks and turn on the lights and siren.  After, one of the firemen drove the truck and sprayed water out of it.  They also gave all the kids a plastic fire hat.

We also got to see these full-sized remote control boats that are used as targets for missile practice.  They let the children climb onto the boats and explore them.

This is where they launch missiles from.  We were not allowed to take a picture of the actual structure, but the view was awesome.
