NEW! Solar Impulse Plane Makes History

Shortly after graduating from Virginia Tech as an electrical engineer, Paige Kassalen joined the Covestro team in Pittsburgh and subsequently was chosen to be on the 16-person ground crew for the historic Solar Impulse journey. In 2016, Solar Impulse was the first solar-powered airplane to fly around the world without a drop of fossil fuel! At age 22, Paige was the youngest person on the ground crew and the only American woman on the international team. As a member of the "catching crew," she was responsible for safe takeoff and landing – including steering the 5100-lb tail and catching the wing when it landed. Now, Paige is working as a member of Covestro’s Future of Mobility team exploring how innovative material solutions can solve the challenges of autonomous vehicles.

Hear Paige tell her amazing story and ask her about her career path and the plans she has for her bright future.
