Victor Glover will give a talk, “Engineering Possibilities,” at 7 p.m. at Spanos Theatre.
The presentation will include discussion on the benefits of science, technology, engineering and math education — as well as on developing a strong work ethic.
Glover, a 1999 graduate, was a Cal Poly wrestler and football player.
The former Navy lieutenant commander was among eight candidates named to NASA’s 21st astronaut class in 2013.
He was selected from a candidate pool of more than 6,100, and he’s now eligible for mission assignments, having completed his training.
