Flex Academies ONE Summer Camp Reimagined announced that it will welcome SpaceX Life Support Systems Engineer Andrew Irby as its special guest for “Space Week.”
Irby is the engineer responsible for life support systems on the Dragon 2 vehicle. He is a member of the team that recently launched two NASA astronauts into space aboard the SpaceX rocket to dock with the International Space Station, in a historic partnership between a private company and government agency.
Irby will be talking to virtual campers about what he does and his love for space and engineering. He will also take questions from the campers.
“We are beyond excited to see and hear from Andrew Irby,” said Flex Academies ONE Founder and CEO Joshua Chernikoff. “The kids are already talking about what they want to ask him. And you never know who among our kids will be part of space exploration in the years to come.”
Flex Academies ONE’s Summer Camp Reimagined will hold “Space Week” from June 22-26.
