There is a name of a young graduate from Treviso circulating around Space Meetings Veneto. President Mario Pozza mentioned him, noting the importance of institutions in creating tracks of inspiration for young people, looking to a successful future for the Veneto region, in his speech on stage in Venice in the presence of leading global players in the space economy and emerging technology sectors. He is Dr. Lorenzo Botter from Treviso, who successfully followed the track indicated, first from the ‘Leonardo da Vinci’ scientific high school, winning an international competition of Nasa, entitled: Nasa challenge zero robotics, programming mini satellites that were then made to work inside the ISS – International Space Station, with the code he had calculated with his colleagues.
Then, thanks to the scholarship he received for his outstanding sporting achievements in athletics, he landed at High Point University in North Carolina. He graduated in physics with a minor in computer science and passed level 1 and 2 certifications to launch rockets. He is now here in Italy to graduate from the University of Padua at the end of the summer. Next year he will go to study at Stanford, Silicon Valley, for his master’s degree in aeronautical and astronautical engineering. Probably, he tells us, he will have to do his first work experience, to pay for his studies, but luckily,’ says President Pozza, ‘even if it is for the long term, he would like to return to Italy. Take note of the name, because he will have a brilliant future!!! -.
