We have had the privilege of working with Youth SF over the past year. Youth SF is an organization that prepares students to more actively participate in the technological revolution that is transforming our world.
Thanks to Youth SF, we were both thrilled and honored to welcome our guest, Dr. Leroy Chiao (former NASA astronaut and International Space Station Commander), to St. Finn Barr Catholic School.
Dr. Chiao has logged more than 229 days in space on four space missions, including six spacewalks and supporting ISS design and construction. Since leaving NASA, he has worked with various technology companies and organizations.
Thanks to Dr. Chiao, we were able to see what life was like firsthand through his personal videos and presentation. In many ways, we felt like we were right there with him, orbiting around the earth!
We are ever so grateful Dr. Chiao took time out of his very busy schedule to visit St. Finn Barr and are sure to never forget his story!
