An Interview with Brandon Pitt
Brandon Pitt is a rising senior at Madison High School. This summer is his first year at the Summer Transportation Institute (STI). The diversity of activities in the program motivates Brandon and the students of STI to go out each day and explore.
Brandon’s favorite field trip was the one to the Logan International Airport. He says he appreciated the trip because, “It’s really exciting to see planes take off.” Brandon also enjoyed the trip to the John A. Volpe National Transportation Systems Center, which he described as eye-opening because he aspires to be a mechanical engineer.
This summer, Brandon was given the opportunity to fly a drone helicopter. Through research, skills, and professionalism, he learned how to fly the drone by using an app on his cellphone. Dressed in business attire, shared the drone experience with his classmates at the program’s weekly group presentation. Brandon’s involvement in the program has made him more prepared for the world of technology and business, and he is ready to take on new challenges.
