A group of Pedrozzi Young Scholars had a unique opportunity to virtually connect with author, Mary Roach, author of Packing for Mars for Kids! In a hybrid presentation at Marilyn Avenue School, thirty-six Pedrozzi Young Scholars in grades five to eight, had an opportunity to virtually meet the author and to ask interesting questions about her research and preparation for the book. The young scholars also got to hear about the author’s journey to becoming an author. Mary Roach has written several books for adults, but this was her first children’s book. The students all got an autographed book to take home at the end of the presentation.

The Pedrozzi Foundation is proud to support these bright students, and we look forward to seeing what their futures will hold. Maybe one day one of these bright students will pack for Mars!
