HUNTSVILLE, Ala. -- Kollin Fitch, the son of Kenny and Heidi Penny of La Vernia, recently attended Space Camp at the U.S. Space and Rocket Center. The weeklong educational program promotes science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM), while training students and adults with hands-on activities and missions based on teamwork, leadership, and decision-making.

Kollin received the camp’s highest and most coveted award -- The Right Stuff award. This award, named for Tom Wolfe’s 1979 book, The Right Stuff, is given to an outstanding trainee who goes above and beyond in leadership, teamwork, and technology throughout the week.

Kollin was part of the Advanced Space Academy Program, which is specifically designed for high school trainees who have a particular interest in science and aerospace. He spent the week training with a team that flew a simulated Space Shuttle mission to the International Space Station. Once aboard the space station, the crew participated in experiments and successfully completed an extravehicular activity, or space walk. Kollin and his crew returned to Earth in time to graduate with honors!

Space Camp operates year-round in Huntsville, Ala., and uses astronaut-training techniques to engage trainees in real-world applications of STEM subjects.
