We never forget our first flight!
This week, the four winning students from the Embraer High Schools in Brazil embarked on a trip of a life time. For the first time, Lumena, Bruna, Tulio and João, traveled abroad to the United States and experienced the sensation of flying. Follow their adventure!
In June, the Embraer Institute and Foundation launched a video contest at the two Embraer high schools. Students were asked to answer: how the schools contribute to their development, how they contribute to their community and how are they motivated to share their knowledge in the future.
Over 100 videos were submitted, 20 of which were shortlisted. 12 students, six from each school, were interviewed and four were ultimately selected as the winners to go on this unforgettable trip.
The students started their week with a visit to NASA’s Kennedy Space Center, a day at an American high school, a visit to Embraer’s Melbourne site and a day at Universal Studios.
