RICHMOND, Va. -- Students from two local high schools had their STEM experiments launched into space — and it's giving us something to smile about!

Students from Saint Mary’s Catholic School and The Steward School participated in the Cubes in Space program. Their experiments were on board a NASA sounding rocket that flew to space out of NASA's Wallops Flight Facility on the Eastern Shore of Virginia Friday morning.

Our Evanne Armour talked with Lourdes Olivencia of St. Mary’s Catholic School and Ana Reveles Leon of The Steward School about their projects and what it took to get ready for liftoff!
