Rita High School Mentoring Program:
URIC services the community by working with Santa Rita High School's
welding students. We provide instruction and hands on experience
to the students in our shop twice a week. This includes the basics
of heliarc welding. In 2004, one of the students was awarded 2nd
place in the statewide VICA competition.
addition, our Cryogenics & Gas Facility donates nitrogen to
the Tucson Children's Museum, UA Physics Bus, UA Physics Phun Night
as well as various elementary school demonstrations.
