Sensational Presentation by Former Astronaut - Dottie Metcalf Lindenburger

Saturday, July 29, 2017 - 12:45

WOW! Former astronaut, Dottie Metcalf Lindenburger, gave an inspirational talk about her journey to become a female astronaut.  Dottie grew up on the Front Range and, as a child, dreamed of becoming an astronaut. She even made a model of the Discovery that she hung in her room. Boltz science teacher, Rick Jordan, encouraged her interest in science and she went on to major in geology, and then applied to NASA as a teacher. 20 years after she had created her Discovery model as a child, she actually flew on the Discovery as part of a NASA mission. Sensational talk inspiring kids (and adults) to follow their dreams.
