TSM newcomer Jerry Koskie supervised students flying a radio-controlled helicopter. Veteran TSM instructors Ceci Stratford and Chuck Camphagen demonstrated a radio controlled airship and the Lunar Utility Vehicle respectively. TSM president, Ivor Dawson manned the Odyssey III Mobile SpaceLab. Other attractions included bottle rockets and space suit demonstrations. Astro-Jeopardy-a portable game show set complete with lights, buzzers and wacky game show host proved to be another big crowd-pleaser!
