“My favorite activity was going to the space science class and watching the solar system move around me from a dome-shaped screen above my head. I realized how much I am fascinated by the stars and planets. I will definitely look into becoming an astronomer when I get older.”2016 Rogers Explorers graduate Abigail Wagers of Clay County
