Congratulations Darren Charrier
Darren Charrier was one of our students from Vista Murrieta’s High School Class of 2014. He had big dreams about space, and he selected the university that he believed would best support those goals. He chose to attend the University of California, San Diego despite other numerous college acceptances.
At UCSD, he has been able to pursue his passion through SEDS, Students for the Exploration and Development of Space. He is currently an officer, and the chapter was selected as the #1 chapter nationally for 2015. Their sponsors include organizations like NASA and Lockheed Martin. Their projects vary, but Darren has been very involved with a rocket being designed by their chapter in an attempt to be the first student team in the world to successfully fly and recover a rocket powered by a 3D printed engine. He has also started a project through SEDS to design an award winning satellite that will be traveling to the Moon on NASA’s most powerful rocket.
He was chosen to share about his UCSD experience for this year’s Triton Day video for admitted students, “Welcome Session Video”. Check out the video, and his insights at https://vimeo.com/162549859!
