Dr. John Herrington, Ph.D., the world's first indigenous astronaut, recently visited Rapid City for a board meeting of the American Indian Institute for Innovation. AIII is a non–profit dedicated to improving the number of Natives in STEM: science, technology, engineering and math fields.
KOTA news caught up with Herrington and asked him about what his plans are for an extended education program in the area. He said his main goal is to build a dedicated school for native students that will push STEM education and careers.
