Working with several machines, using Mastercam software and making flight hardware for the ISS was life changing. Also, as an intern and mentor, it gave me the opportunity to teach other students what I knew about
machining and engineering. This, without a doubt, helped me get my job at Sam Houston.

I had the opportunity of a lifetime to be able to work on projects that are now onboard the International Space Station and used at various NASA facilities in the US which have truly been influential accomplishments for me, other students and to the space program. Given my invaluable experience, regardless of the career path that you pick or the interest that you may have, the HUNCH program instills students with the knowledge and expertise that will lead to a promising future.

Working with the HUNCH program throughout high school helped not only to improve my sewing skills but also to better understand project management and work flow over long term projects. Learning the responsibilities as well as technical skills made my college experience even more rewarding.

Interning for HUNCH gave me that edge I needed to land this job. I appreciate what HUNCH offers for students to get real world experience. Now I get to program and machine every day.
