20180213_155956[1]Amanda got hooked on engineering early (6th grade!) through the Columbia Aeronautics and Space Association in her hometown of Columbia, MO. In CASA, Amanda learned how NASA operates while building her problem solving skills. She continued in CASA through her senior year of high school, when she was the Station Commander for the ISS. Amanda is interested in rocketry in order to push humans further than we have explored before. She would like to work for NASA and eventually be selected as an astronaut herself. She named her first dog Mercury after the first US manned spaced program. She has also visited the Space Shuttles Patherfinder, Enterprise, and Independence and has a goal to eventually see all of them.
