A crowd of around 500 - leaders from the Space industry, participants of the International Space University program, or ISU, personnel from Florida Tech, NASA and other local Space Companies, as well as the general public - gathered this summer at the Gleason Center for the Performing Arts, on Campus at Florida Tech. The audience came to hear from speakers at the first TEDx event resulting from collaboration between the ISU, NASA’s Kennedy Space Center, and the Florida Institute of Technology.
A recent collaboration between Sebastian Inlet Sportfishing Association and FL Tech took place aboard the 85 ft. Thunderforce. WFIT’s Terri Wright and Michelle Walker were along for the outing. Here, in part two of our look at this excursion, we explore the role of FL Tech faculty and students.

Blistered and bug-bitten, a group of conservationists reached their destination of Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge in southern Georgia, on Earth Day. The Florida Wildlife Corridor Expedition team set out back in January, at the southern tip of Florida in the Everglades National Park. They made their way up through the sunshine state on foot, by paddle and occasionally on horseback. Their goal has been to garner attention for a vision to link Florida’s already existing protected natural areas, to lands with the potential to be protected.
