Brian Turner, captain of the Kansas City Space Pirates, sent me this link to a recent article about his appearance in front of an eighth-grade science class. It’s clear that Brian is recruiting the next generation of engineers so that his team can enjoy continued Games dominance in the American midwest… ?
Brian sent me this explanation of his visit: “Bonner Springs is a suburb of Kansas City with a population of about 7,000. A Middle School teacher asked me to come speak to the kids. He also asked the local paper to come and see what was going on.”
Certainly his sponsors have to be very happy with the picture accompanying the story.
