From the time he attended space camp as a young boy, Logan Sailer had a passion for space and for the crafts that take us into the unknown. In his VIth form year he took the advice of his Millbrook college counselor and applied to the Florida Institute of Technology to study aerospace engineering. Having tight relationships with Cape Canaveral and NASA, the school was a really good fit, and Logan headed south to Florida in the fall of 2005.
Other students in the aerospace program had a real interest in maximizing their education, and many of his classmates joined extracurricular programs, like the model airplane club, where they had additional opportunities to interact with and learn from professors. Between classes and time commitments as a member of the university’s rowing team, Logan made a conscious effort to connect with his professors in an equally direct way, often taking time outside of class to get more information on topics about which he was enthusiastic.
