This is a pretty amazing story regarding 3 female students, namley: Toriana Cornwell, Gabrielle Melendez, and Shaniylah Welch, who embarked upon a mission to do research using potatoes including launching them into space.  The girls presented their idea to the SSEP (Student Spaceflight Experiment Program) Competition and won, earning them a trip to Cape Canaveral in Florida to watch the launching of their potatoes into space.

WBLK Congratulates Toriana Cornwell, Gabrielle Melendez, and Shaniylah Welch, as well as their Supervisor, Mr.  Andrew Franz for this Great & Historical Accomplishment.

I had the opportunity to interview one of the, soon to be famous, "SPUD LAUNCHERS", Toriana Cornwell as well as the gentleman who has and will support the "Spud Launcher" Ladies throughout, Mr. Andrew Franz!!!!!
