Living in a state that experiences the four seasons, we’ve seen the peace and power of what nature can bring. A former astronaut has seen it from another viewpoint. Story Musgrave is the featured speaker at this weekend’s Wyoming State FIRST Lego League Robotics Championship. Carrying on the League’s theme of “Nature’s Fury,” Dr. Musgrave will share his out-of-this world experience beginning at 6 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 6, 2013 at the Casper Events Center.
In his three decades working for NASA, Dr. Musgrave flew on six space missions including a shuttle spacewalk on Challenger’s first flight and served as the lead Spacewalker for the Hubble Telescope. He is a highly decorated veteran of the U.S. Marines and NASA and holds several national awards.
Robot practice rounds will begin immediately following Story Musgrave’s address. The State FIRST Lego League Robotics Championship and Junior FIRST Lego League Expo team registration opens on Saturday, Dec. 7, 2013 at 7 a.m. with Robot Rounds beginning at 12:30 p.m. Dr. Musgrave’s address and the Robotics competition are free and open to the public.
