Harper attends, Aviation Challenge Mach III
Zoe Harper of Versailles recently attended Aviation Challenge Mach III at the U.S. Space and Rocket Center, NASA Marshall Space Flight Center’s official visitor center.
The week-long educational program promotes science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), while training students and adults with hands-on activities and missions based on teamwork, leadership and problem solving.
This program is specifically designed for students with an interest in military aviation and the mechanics of flight. Taking the role of fighter pilots, Harper and team ran control systems and scenario based missions as well as trained in water and land survival. At the end of the week, Harper and crew returned in time to graduate with honors.
