Provo Peaks is part of the Provo School District. Sunset Elementary is a part of the Davis School District.  Both ships have SIM numbers which reference their place in the simulator family of ships since the beginning of the movement.

Provo Peaks Elementary
     InfiniD Labs basically morph a school's computer lab into a futuristic starship simulator. Provo Peak's  simulator will be used to enhance the school's elementary curriculum.  Jennifer Remy will oversee the program.

     Many of you old timers will remember Jennifer from her work at the Christa McAuliffe Space Education Center. Jennifer worked with me on the Voyager and was our summer camp instructor for several years. Jennifer recently was named the 2016 Secondary Teacher of the Year from the Utah Air Force Association.  This is the write up on the Provo District's website.  

Jennifer Remy
     Provo High Science teacher and District STEM coordinator, Jennifer Remy, was selected to receive the Chapter 236 Secondary Teacher of the Year Award from the Utah Air Force Association!Each year, the Utah Air Force Association presents an educator who has gone the extra mile to increase student interest in math, science and technology an award for displaying excellence in education. 
     Jennifer’s deep love for aerospace and space technology exploration engages her students daily. Many students enjoy hearing about Jennifer’s work with the Christa McAuliffe space simulation lab and stories about visiting the Kennedy Space Center. Her expertise and passion for this subject has not only entertained, but enlightened the minds of her students.For the past year or so, Jennifer has requested extra funding to provide her students with the experience of building and engineering rockets! This enables her students to work with their hands and minds to make the calculations and build the designs they can then fly. After the designs are flown, data is collected and designs revised; helping her students to understand the iterative process of engineering. Jennifer’s commitment to STEM education has been impactful on her students and the district. We want to thank her for her excellent work congratulate her on her award!
