Blackhawk at School


THE CITY OF RANCHO CORDOVA IS REWARDING THEIR STUDENTS. LIVE AT MITCHELL MIDDLE SCHOOL. MY MARAUDERS. AND THEY STILL DON’T KNOW. THEY’RE UP THERE RIGHT NOW. YOU SEE THE ADMINISTRATORS UP THERE. SCHOOL DRESSED LIKE JEDIS. THAT’S BECAUSE IT’S MAY THE FORCE OF KINDNESS BE WITH YOU. THAT’S THEIR THEME FOR TODAY. THESE KIDS HAVE NO IDEA WHAT’S IN THAT BOX NOW. WHILE WE WERE AWAY. PARTS OF THAT SURPRISE SHOWED UP. SEE THAT BLACKHAWK HELICOPTER? YEAH, THAT’S RIGHT. THEY’RE CARRYING BIG SECRET BOXES. I WOULD THINK SOMETHING TERRIBLE HAPPENED. BUT IT’S NOT. JOINING US NOW, DARCY BREWER. YOU’RE WITH THE CALIFORNIA CAPITAL AIR SHOW. TELL US. YOU KNOW WHAT THEY’RE IN STORE FOR. WE CAN’T TELL ANYBODY. THEY’RE NOT WATCHING TV. THEY GUESSED CANDY, PUPPY, PIZZA PARTY. PIZZA IS GOOD. ALL OF THOSE ARE GOOD, BUT NOT NEARLY AS FUN AS GETTING FREE TICKETS TO THE CAPITAL AIR SHOW. COUPLE OF WEEKS AWAY. THEY STILL DON’T KNOW. LOOK AT THIS BOX. TOP SECRET. THIS IS THE KIND OF COMMUNITY PARTNERSHIP THAT DREAMS ARE MADE OF FOR SURE. THE CITY OF RANCHO CORDOVE A — CORDOVA WHO SURROUNDS SACRAMENTO COUNTY EVERY YEAR. REALLY WANTS TO MAKE SURE THE CITY GETS INSIDE THE GATES. INSIDE ARE TICKETS FOR ADULTS AND KIDS TO COME OUT AND ENJOY THE HUGE AIR SHOW, WHICH IS A GIANT STEM EDUCATION CLASSROOM ANYWAY. IT’S JUST REALLY EXCITING. WE WERE TALKING EARLIER ABOUT HOW IT CHANGES LIVES. AND SOME OF THE PEOPLE’S KIDS WHO HAVE COME TO THE AIR SHOW BEFORE HAVE BEEN INSPIRED TO DO VERY SIMILAR JOBS, CAREERS, THAT SORT OF THING. I’M SURE THERE’S THOUSANDS OF STORIES WE HAVEN’T HEARD. BUT WE DO GET SEVERAL HUNDRED A YEAR, ABOUT PEOPLE WHO BRING THEIR KIDS OUT. AND SOMETHING SPARKS THEIR IMAGINATION. SOMETHING SPARKS THEIR INTEREST. AND THE AIR SHOW IS ALL ABOUT WHAT HAPPENS NEXT. LONG AFTER THE GATES CLOSE. THEY PROVIDE A SCHOOL-TO-CAREER BLUEPRINT OF SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, AND MATH ENGINEERING STUNT OPPORTUNITIES. I HAVE TO TELL YOU GUYS. THEY’RE SO SUPER STOKED. WE’RE JUST WAITING. WAITING. I’M LIKE, OPEN THE BOX! WHAT’S IN THE BOX. OPEN THE BOX. GOOD FOR ALL OF THEM. DARCY, CAN YOU RUN IN THERE AND OPEN THE BOX? NO. WE HAVE TO WAIT. BUT THEN I’D SPOIL THE BIG SURPRISE. DARN IT. ALL RIGHT. WE ALL AT HOME KNOW WHAT THEY’RE ABOUT TO GET. AND YOU CAN IMAGINE THIS IS A GREAT SURPRISE FOR THEM. AND WHAT A DELIVERY. THIS IS JUST THE FIRST SCHOOL. WE’VE GOT 19 OTHER SCHOOLS. [ LAUGHTER ] ALL RIGHT. WE’RE JUST DOING IT IN STYLE. THAT’S RIGHT. IT IS IN STYLE. BACK TO YOU GUYS.
