Jimmy Acevedo started his journey to NASA through high-altitude ballooning while a community college student. Flying robot arms and atmospheric sensors on scientific balloons led to three Goddard Space Flight Center internships. His diverse background in video game development, K-12 education, and NASA engineering informs his design of physics-focused outreach activities. He manages an intern program for the Space Communication and Navigation program office, and takes every opportunity to tinker with kinetic sculptures, tabletop game props, and his beehives.
