On May 24th veteran astronaut Capt. Stephen G. Bowen visited Robert E. Fitch High School to share his space experiences and answer questions for the students. Students from several Eastern Connecticut schools including N.F.A. and Bacon Academy gathered into Fitch's auditorium to hear Captain Bowen speak.
After a presentation about his space travels, student representatives Dominick Twitty and Zoe Yopp presented the astronaut with gifts from the team. These gifts included a 2011 team shirt and a plaque thanking NASA for their sponsorship support.
After the presentations, Captain Bowen was delightfully surprised with a demonstration of Talyn in a game of Logomotion by drivers Tim Entwistle and Niral Patel. Before leaving Capt. Bowen happily signed Talyn's bumper . The Aluminum Falcons and Fitch High School are grateful for Captain Bowen coming out to share his experiences with the students.
Captain Bowen's visit was generously sponsored by the Eastern Connecticut Workforce Investment Board in collaboration with the Naval Submarine Medical Research Laboratory.
