Paxton’s ERAU Students Visit Representative Brad Drake
Submitted by Heather Stewart, Paxton School
Paxton High School’s Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University Gaetz Aerospace Institute students recently traveled to Tallahassee, Florida for a full day of activities.
Students put their skills to the test during a simulated space mission at the Challenger Learning Center where they worked together to complete the mission including research, analysis and engineering. Following the mission and other activities at the center, students met with Representative Brad Drake during a tour of the Florida Capitol, followed by a visit to Florida State University’s robotics lab and $6 million wind tunnel.
Thank you to the Florida Space Grant Consortium for their generous grant support of this trip.
