Sixteen Hurst-Euless-Bedford Independent School District high school students and teachers worked on their STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) skills during their holiday break. Those skills involved taking turns on Wednesday, December 28, at iFLY Indoor Skydiving Fort Worth, located in Hurst, compliments of Dalworth Restoration and Dalworth Clean.

“We partner throughout the year with 6Stones Mission Network, which highly engages students and families in their outreach ministry,” said Dalworth Restoration CEO Shane Hobbs. “Back in early November, we asked what we might do that could be a unique and memorable experience beyond the financial reach of a lot of these students. Once we visited iFLY Indoor Skydiving Fort Worth, we had our answer.”

Dalworth and 6Stones have collaborated with school counselors from L.D. Bell, Euless Trinity and KEYS High School to identify deserving students that have earned respect and trust while being involved in their community and on their campus.

iFLY allows jumpers to ride the blast of 130 miles an hour for 60-second cycles inside the SkyVenture vertical wind tunnel, allowing each of the participants to enjoy two flights.

Prior to their flights, each student and teacher took part in personalized flight training, where their instructors teach them the aerodynamics of flight. The students and teachers will witness a STEM presentation with some practical applications to their Science, Technology, Engineering and Math skills.

Dalworth Clean was established in 1976 and is a member of

the 40-year-old Dalworth Group, which includes Dalworth Restoration, Dalworth Rug Cleaning, Dalworth Crawl Space, Professional Carpet Cleaners Supply and Central Station Marketing, all based in Euless.

6Stones Mission Network is a nonprofit launched in 2009 out of the First Baptist Church of Euless with the purpose of transforming lives, homes and communities,
