Jack Pitkin, Lab Coordinator for Physics, Geology and Astronomy and operations manager of the Jones Observatory

Jack Pitkin was asked to conduct informational and educational lessons for the 2011 Challenger Center campers last summer at the Jones Observatory.  The lessons were delivered on schedule, allowing the classes to go smoothly. “We prescribed the when and how long, together with our main camp theme. Jack took care of all the rest. He was always prepared and waiting when we arrived,” said Bill Floyd, Challenger Center Flight Director.  A full 1.5-hour program was professionally presented in the early afternoon timeframe during three different camps with effortless coordination made between the Challenger Center and Pitkin, Floyd said. Campers really enjoyed the field trip off campus where they learned about telescopes and saw the planetarium show.  “Jack deserves this award for not only greatly assisting other UTC colleagues and departments with their programs, but for positively impacting/encouraging many middle schoolers towards advanced levels of science,” said Floyd.
