HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) - Students from Limestone County Career Technical Center were up bright and early today to do something that most of their friends are not doing this summer: be in a big Hollywood movie. The movie “Space Warriors” is being filmed at the U.S. Space and Rocket Center right now. There’s a scene that needed local students who are involved in their school’s robotics program. Students from Limestone County were hand-picked for the part, along with a couple of other schools in the area.

According to teacher Brian Terry, everyone was very excited about today’s shoot. “It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity for the students.”

Tim Hall from the U.S. Space and Rocket Center says it’s a wonderful opportunity for local students’ robotics programs to be showcased. “Any time that you can tell your story locally and then it goes out to the entire world, hey, that’s something to really be proud of.”

Look for “Space Warriors” to hit movie theaters in the spring of 2013.
