OC Pathways and PBS’ RoadTrip Nation will stop at Cypress College Tuesday, March 28 for a filmed engineering road trip event with Virgin Galactic to inspire students to define their own roads in life.

Virgin Galactic VP of Operations Tim Buzza and Caitlin Curtis, a Virgin Galactic composites manufacturing engineer, will meet with Cypress students to share career and life experiences. Following a presentation, students will have the opportunity to participate in a discussion and Q&A with Buzza and Curtis.

RoadTrip Nation’s bright green RV will start its trip at Los Alamitos High School for a morning presentation, then make its way to the College for the 1-3 p.m. event in the CCCPLX 216 lecture hall. The event will be broadcast on PBS at a later date.

RoadTrip Nation has been traveling around the world for 15 years interviewing people from various backgrounds about their careers and how they determined their paths in life.
