Rochester, N.Y. (WHAM) - It was an out of this world experience for students at Allendale Columbia on Wednesday.
Clayton Turner, the deputy director of NASA's Langley Research Center, visited with students to talk about outer space and the American space program.
Turner talked about ideas on how NASA uses modeling in engineering for space exploration. He shared the many careers that anyone can have with NASA and that anything is possible.
"I have a strong belief that our future is right here in these classrooms and I want every kid to be excited about what they're going to do," Turner said. "I hope that they take from this the difference between hard and impossible. They sometimes replace one for the other. They've got to know what's hard requires work."
Turner also met with the middle school robotics team and spoke to freshmen physics and 3D modeling classes.
