LSC Alumnus Jordan Fail meets with Robo Tech Campers at NASA.

ALUMNI SPOTLIGHT UPDATE: Campers hear from alum at NASA

LSC-Creekside Center recently hosted high school students at multiple science-based camps including a Robo Tech camp where they built model rockets and learned about potential careers in STEM. To culminate the end of camp, campers visited NASA’s Johnson Space Center where they learned about the history of space exploration. During their lunch break, campers visited with LSC alum and scholarship recipient Jordan Fail.  You may remember him from the Foundation’s previous alumni profile story here.

Jordan spoke with the students about his studies and how he loves to work at NASA.

“He graciously spoke to our Robo Tech campers regarding his journey to becoming an Electronics Design Engineer for NASA. He explained that taking STEM courses particularly math and science are very important to take while in high school, college, and to make good grades.” said Rita Ray, Manager Workforce.

Lone Star College offers students many opportunities to learn and explore their interests with state-of-the-art equipment and excellent faculty. “There is a lot to be said for smaller schools with dedicated teachers.  I still have yet to take a class with a better professor than Loris Zucca, who taught all of my calculus and other math courses at LSC,” said Jordan.

Jordan earned the Dr. Linda Stegall Excellence in Education Scholarship before graduating from Lone Star College-Kingwood in 2015. Jordan went on to earn his bachelor’s degree in Computer Engineering from the University of Houston and now works at NASA as an Electronics Design Engineer. He provides products and technical services related to human operations in space through the development and integration of a broad spectrum of engineering requirements.
