Testimonials

Educators

“This program is awesome! The students are more engaged and more excited about this class than any other class they’re in. They are learning new ways to think, how to solve problems and overcome failures and much, much more. It’s great to see their enthusiasm for this project.“
Tom Parish, Hamilton High School, Hamilton, Texas
“One of the highlights of my career will be going to White Sands Missile Range with the Alamo Heights High School students. It was an amazing experience, and one that neither the students nor I will ever forget.”
Dr. Kevin Brown, Superintendent of Schools, Alamo Heights ISD
“I love watching the students make decisions like should a circuit be series or parallel or should we build a catapult or a ballista. As teachers, too often we make the decisions for our students. The engineering program doesn’t just ask students to make decisions, it teaches them how to make them. Even if they don’t go into a STEM field, that skill, the ability to make decisions for themselves, may be the most valuable skill they learn.”
Randall Presley Lamesa High School, Lamesa, Texas
“…and say thank you to the organization (SystemsGo) for giving me and our school the tools and inspiration to implement something so profoundly impactful to our students. Loving it every day!”
Jordan Slavish, Yamhill Carlton High School, Yamhill, Oregon

Industry

“What Brett is doing is great and I’d strongly encourage other programs like his elsewhere, we need to make engineering interesting to students and this is a great way to do it.”
Elon Musk, President Space Exploration Technologies
“Your program influences your students at the age when they need to make some critical decisions in their life and getting them to consider engineering and specializing in rocket propulsion is very important to our industry.”
Lee Meyer, Vice President Marketing, Aerojet General Corporation
“You are to be commended for your efforts in teaching the youth of Texas. Good luck with your program and with future efforts in education and technology.”
Robert L. Crippen, President, Thiokol Propulsion, a division of Cordant Technologies, Inc.
“After being involved in numerous research programs and working in the sciences field for several years I can only say, what a class act, and this is a High School program!!! WOW, I came away with a genuine respect and admiration, and not so much about the rockets, but the environment that I was experiencing, the energy in the students and their overall attitude. I have to say, the level of professionalism I witnessed was top notch.

Consider me another advocate, thanks again.”
Marshall Burr, SWISSOMATION INC.

“I believe that your program serves as a catalyst for academic growth and teamwork skills that are essential to our Nation’s future workforce. Our country needs more students and educators pursuing science, technology, engineering and mathematics to protect our security and our way of life.”
A.G. Stephenson, Director, George C. Marshall Space Flight Center

Government

“Your summer launch is a shining example that ‘What Texans can dream, Texans can do.’ The future of our state and nation depends on young people becoming active and involved citizens and you are off to a great start.”
George W. Bush, former Governor of Texas, former President of the United States

“One of my key educational goals is ensuring that Texas students have the science, technology and math education that makes them competitive in the global market place. The Fredericksburg Education Initiative is a first step toward meeting this goal because it will help prepare our teachers for this exciting and challenging opportunity.”
Rick Perry, former Governor of Texas

“Your testimony caused the education conversations of our commission to catch fire. We feel the energy and commitment that you and your students devote to your studies. Furthermore, we see those efforts paying large dividends to our country. We salute you and wish you only the best.”
The Honorable Edward C. “Pete” Aldridge, Jr. – Chairman, Commission on Moon, Mars and Beyond

“I was just flabbergasted with how sharp those students were…they sounded like college engineers about to graduate.”
Jerry Berg, NASA MSFC

“These young students of yours are being provided opportunities that, unfortunately, too few young people get. The opportunity to not only learn about science and space, but to experience the joy and the thrill of turning this learning into a real vehicle and watching that vehicle soar. Those are the kinds of experiences that will stay with these students forever and will lead them to continue the education they need to become the scientists and engineers of tomorrow.”
Daniel S. Goldin, Administrator, NASA

“We welcome the opportunity to support and encourage our youth of today to pursue careers in the Science and Engineering fields, and this type of program is a very good “hands-in” approach.”
William F. Engel, Brigadier General, US Army Commanding General
