Dakotah Rusley, an Aerospace Engineer for NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, came to Mrs. Benter and Mrs. O’Connor’s fifth grade classroom. Dakotah is a 2013 Baker High School graduate and an alumni of South Dakota School of Mines and Technology. Dakotah explained his job and projects he is involved in at NASA. He also spoke about having dreams, passions, and interests, and following those passions like he did. The students were extremely interested to hear how the different machines and inventions he had created or helped create worked, after his presentation they wanted to get his autograph and continue to ask more questions. It was a great experience for the students to see first hand that they, just like Dakotah, can follow their dreams if they put their plans into action. His final words after the long question and answer session: “Dare mighty things.”
