Chelsea Henrie, Tony Hillerman Middle School

Chelsea Henrie, a sixth-grade science teacher and MESA advisor at Tony Hillerman Middle School, was one of four New Mexico teachers to receive a 2011 Honeywell Educators at Space Academy scholarship. Henrie will attend five days of classroom, laboratory and training time focusing on space science and exploration. She will participate in astronaut-style training and simulations, including two space shuttle missions, working in an anti-gravity environment, water-landing and helicopter-rescuing.

Some of Henrie’s students won a pair of recent statewide science competitions. Four of them took first place at Innoventure for the second straight year. Innoventure is a competition encouraging invention and entrepreneurship. The team of Benjamin Shultz, Devin Werner, Hunter Werner and Aaron Luna designed and built a rain shield for a bicycle to promote green transportation.  They made a business and marketing plan to sell the “Cycleshield” as part of the competition requirements.

Sixth-graders Holly Garand and Virginia Smith won the Middle School Firefighting Challenge at RoboRAVE. They put together a robot designed to extinguish candles at the international competition, which is held in Albuquerque each year.
