InfinD Takes the Starship Titan to Family Day at Adobe's Corporate Headquarters in San Jose, California

The Titan Arriving at Adobe in San Jose
"Have Starship will Travel" is one of many mottos applicable to our good friends at InfiniD.  This last week Casey Voeks, Skyler Carr, and Brooks Heder powered up the Titan's warp nacelles, checked the oil and the dilithium crystals, cleaned the windshield on InfiniD's pickup truck, and set course for the San Jose settlement on the planet California in the Liberal Constellation.  They went to help Adobe celebrate "Family Day".  Employees and their families gathered for games, contests, and entertainment.  The Titan was one of the event's highlights.

Casey sent this subspace communication about their experience. 
Working with Adobe this week was a great experience. We flew missions with around 1,000 Adobe team members and their kids. I love every new peak our team is able to climb. The reflection at the end of these awesome experiences is incredibly rewarding. We have a lot of hard work ahead of us but tonight I'm going to just feel good about how far we've come.

These were the first Voyager inspired Space EdVentures to be flown in California putting Calfornia firmly in the sights of InfiniD Learning.  It is only a matter of time before InfiniD computer lab simulators start popping up in other states. Utah can't be greedy with this innovative experiential based method of learning.  It is time to take the concept to the world.  What a journey this dream has taken toward new lands to explore and vistas to conquer.  

The Christa McAuliffe Space Education Center's Staff Visit a Local Escape Room. A Staff that Plays Together Stays Together (Or So They Tell Me)

How does the staff of a local space education center celebrate the end of the summer space camp season?  The staff of the Christa McAuliffe Space Education Center have a new, two-year-old tradition; they visit a local escape room.

Sadly I was unable to attend due to a mission previously scheduled on the USS Voyager at Renaissance Academy, my stomping grounds.  I missed last year's grand outing and vowed not to miss this year's which I missed because I'm too old to get my dates and scheduling right.  What really makes me happy is they consider me just tolerable enough to invite even though I'm technically not a member of staff.  

I like to think of myself as Space Center Director Emeritus, which means I get to stop by once in awhile to enjoy the spirit and enthusiasm of the staff and volunteers without having any responsibility (as long as my visits usually include sugary treats and a Dr. Pepper for a certain weekend assistant director). How cool is that!   

Directing the CMSEC for Twenty-three years was long enough, thank you very much. Space Center Directing is for younger people and Mr. James Porter is doing a fantastic job of it.  I mean, look how much fun he's having clinging to that, whatever it is.  Maybe it's the ship's smokestack?  It can't be - this is Treasure Island; you know, sailing ships with sails unfurled. Maybe the ship's mast.  Maybe just a random pipe in the room painted black (kind of like the USS Voyager's "Blowline Digester", the pipe that occupied the hallway just as you came through the ship's turning door from the stage).

With the summer space camp season nearing its end the CMSEC staff turn their attention to the 2017-2018 school year field trips.  Thousands and thousands of students will be anxiously waiting the field trip of their lives and this group of folks you see in the photo above will provide it.  

Congratulations Staff and Volunteers of the Christa McAuliffe Space Education Center in Pleasant Grove for a great camp season. Good Luck with the coming school year. 

And Finally
These folks influenced my life and played a part in the Space Center's inspiration.
