At 9 am this Friday (April 28) D2D@GT will be hosting a ½ hour to 45-minute videoconferencing interaction with Captain Barrington Irving. In 2007, at the age of 23, Captain Irving became the youngest pilot to fly solo around the world in a single-engine airplane. Over the course of his 97-day journey, he flew 30,000 miles in a plane called the “Inspiration.” He made this trip to show other youth that if he could achieve his dream, they could too. The Flying Classroom combines air, land, and sea expeditions with a digital curriculum in to engage children around the world in STEM opportunities.

This interaction is for both teachers and students. We will be starting promptly at 9 am and the URL for connecting to this Zoom interaction is: https://zoom.us/j/9915845362.

Please join us. We look forward to seeing you and your students there.
