A group of interns from United Launch Alliance and Ball Aerospace launched rockets - on a much larger scale than those model rockets - thousands of feet into the air this summer for their job.
If you want to relive your childhood, ULA is launching four rockets this weekend in Pueblo. The largest of the rockets is 25-feet tall and weighs 320 pounds.
Amanda Kuker and Dan Regan are two of the interns that had the privilege of working on these rockets.
Reegun has taken his experience from ULA and is teaching younger kids.
"We use these projects to go to local schools and teach them about rocketry, and actually show them big rocket launches," Regan said.
This internship even stemmed into help with the JUNO mission for Kuker.
"They give interns the opportunity to not only work in the engineering disciplines at the headquarters here in Denver, but also to go to the launch sites at the Cape," Kuker said.
