A Visit from a Chief Scientist at NASA, Al Bowers

Al Bowers

 

On November 16th, students at Mariposa Computer Science Magnet School welcomed a special guest speaker, Mr. Al Bowers, a Chief Scientist at NASA. He shared his story of overcoming challenges in his life, as well as his educational background.  He also explained current projects that are happening at NASA. The students were excited to learn about these projects and to touch an actual controller that had been on Apollo 15 when it landed on the moon! Mr. Bowers was receptive to questions and our students had many great ones for him. Thank you so much, Mr. Bowers, for visiting Mariposa Computer Science Magnet School!
