Into Orbit!

Fresh on the heels of our success at the First Lego League (FLL) World Championship in Detroit, St. Louis School is already planning for next year. The FLL theme for 2019 is “Into Orbit” and to kick off our efforts, today our students heard from NASA astronaut Tom Jones. As part of our STEM Speaker series, Dr. Jones described his journey to become an astronaut, his education beginning at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, his time at the Air Force Academy, his four space shuttle missions and what it was like to live in space for a total of 53 days. Students had the opportunity to ask questions and he was kind enough to pose for photographs with our robotics teams. We would like to thank Dr. Jones for his inspiring words, perhaps one of our students will become an astronaut and be the first to walk on Mars!
