Hi, my name is Sarah Heckel and I am a senior in Mechanical Engineering with a minor in Aerospace Engineering. I am from Steamboat Springs and when I’m not talking about space, I enjoy skiing, hiking, and the outdoors. I have always loved space and I continuously look for ways I can learn about space technologies and discoveries! For the past year, I have pursued my passion by doing research in the Space Resources Department here at Mines! As I begin my role as Vice President, I look forward to increasing student involvement by continuing AIAA’s excellent program of guest speakers, while adding more interactive activities including site tours, conferences, and social events! I look forward to meeting you all!
