NASA Engineer Kobie Boykins
Grades 5-8

Embark on a journey through more than two decades of space exploration as NASA’s lead principal engineer Kobie Boykins takes us on an epic adventure through its greatest triumphs and challenges. As one of the driving creative minds behind the Mars Rovers, Kobie has turned to explore more distant frontiers. In late 2024, he will lead NASA's most ambitious mission to date: a circumnavigation of one of Jupiter's four moons, Europa, searching for signs of life beneath its icy surface. 

Through high-tech animations, images, and footage captured by the Rovers, Kobie shares stories of persevering through problems, why he’s so passionate about his work, and how information from a distant planet can provide lessons for us here on Earth.

You Make The Difference

It's 21st century skills that they need to have the rest of their lives. It's not just something that when they leave fourth grade, they are done with it.
