Mentor Day Takes Flight!

On Saturday, January 21st mentors and mentees showed their dedication by coming out to TMA amid ice and freezing rain for Mentor Day. Despite the freezing (literally) weather, pairs were still excited to participate in the planned ice skating activities. Unfortunately, the federal government did not anticipate their dedication to winter activities and the skating rink was closed. The mentor pairs rebounded gracefully and the group spent the day at the Air and Space Museum. Pairs enjoyed a 3D IMAX movie, “Legends of Flight” and learned about the Wright brothers’ first flight and Bessie Coleman, the first female African American pilot. Upon returning to TMA pairs were greeted with a feast from Chipotle procured by Ms. Sher. Not a bad end to the coldest day of the year.
