NASA engineer and alumnus of St. Joe's visits his little sister's fourth-grade classroom
Submitted photo and press release:
Mrs. Fischer’s fourth-grade class was visited by Mr. Penepent, an aeronautical engineer who has worked at NASA's launch site in Cape Canaveral, Fla., for 27 years.
His team works to launch Delta II and IV rockets for NASA. The students came up with some great interview questions and learned some awesome things about the design process, construction and launching of these rockets.
Mr. Penepent attended St. Joseph School from kindergarten through second grade and is Mrs. Fischer’s older brother.
He said he first became interested in his field of aeronautical engineering when he was in third grade while reading a book on airplanes. Who knows, there may be future aeronautical engineers right here at St. Joe’s.
