Woodbury man among state students getting grants to work at NASA

Posted by on Oct 5, 2011 in Archive, News | 0 comments

Daniel Violette always dreamed of one day working for NASA. Now the 19-year-old Woodbury native is able to live his dream this summer thanks to funding from the Connecticut Space Grant College Consortium. The consortium includes 13 universities working to promote aeronautic and space related research grants, scholarships and internship funding for students and college faculty. Violette, a University of Connecticut engineering student, is spending the break between his freshman and sophomore years as an intern at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md., helping to develop a new X-ray navigation system, an experience he described as being motivating and fulfilling. “I’m extremely happy with what I’ve seen so far, there’s been no disillusion for me,” Violette said. “The consortium helped me come down here for free, and have been extremely helpful ever since.

Another testimonial from a student participant in the 2011 Helicopter Workshop program:   Dear Professor Gates: I never got to thank you for the wonderful experience I had with the 2011 National Helicopter Workshop, and I apologize that it has taken this long for me to really think about the impact it has had on me. Since childhood, I have had a passion for art and creativity, and in high school, I gained a love of engineering. While pursuing an engineering degree at my university, I felt aimless, like all the work I was doing was only leading up to a typical engineering job in the industry (no offense intended whatsoever, my personality is a bit strange). I can’t tell you how important it was for me to listen to the stories of the pioneers of Kaman, Sikorsky, and...
