Working at NASA is just as amazing as you’d think it would be, just ask Bishop Foley Catholic alum Evan Laske, Class of 2008! Evan credits Bishop Foley Catholic with helping to prepare him for his exciting career in Robotics Engineering.
“I chose my career path early-on. I chose to come to Foley for two reasons: A) FIRST Robotics and B) German (at the time). Both fed into where I wanted to go with my career: I wanted to be an engineer. Getting hands-on experience in FIRST and having the additional engineering-focused German language under my belt I saw as key to making myself a good engineer. Of course, I didn't think I'd end up at NASA, but I guess that's what happens when you're prepared well. Evan has been involved in many projects including developing a robotic glove that auto workers and astronauts can wear to help them do their jobs better and reduce stress injuries, as well as Robonaut 2, a robot sent to the International Space Station to aid in performing maintenance and other tasks.
