Hello troops, 2013 has been a fantastic year! Let’s a take a quick moment to reflect back at all the amazing dreams that have come true in the past twelve months.
First, while de-cluttering my house over Christmas break I stumbled upon some old photos showing the construction of the IKS Titan approximately one year ago. (Okay, this was actually in late November 2012, but that’s pretty close to the beginning of 2013 so I’m going to count it).
It’s hard to believe that we went from this—an empty room with blue tape on the floor:
To this—an incredible destination filled with cross-disciplinary learning for thousands of students.
Mike Penn and the Shaler Area School District have been working tirelessly for the past year to revolutionize the educational experience of their students.
But that’s not all. 2013 held a bunch of other exciting adventures for the Dream Flight crew. We hosted our first summer camp, attended the ISTE conference in Texas, created a new mission about volcanos, presented at the annual STEM Summit and TRETC Conference in Pittsburgh, hosted a variety of conventions and groups who endlessly tour the IKS Titan, inspired some amazing student fan fiction, and were featured in a variety of great regional and national articles.
It’s been an amazing year, and this is only the beginning. Stay tuned for some exciting new action in 2014.
