Russ_Billings.jpegRuss Billings has been in orbit around innovative education for more than 20 years.  As a former physics teacher in Flint Michigan, he came close to becoming an astronaut with NASA, which heavily influenced his development of a powerfully unique, experiential learning program for high school students.  First launched in Michigan, Russ is refueling and igniting his Dive Into Space initiative at his new location, California State University at Fresno.
