National FFA Organization

Charles Bourland, Former FFA Member and NASA Food Scientist

May 22, 2015

Charles Bourland says his FFA experiences – and his FFA advisor – helped him develop confidence and encouraged him to continue his education after graduation from high school. Charles went on to work as a food scientist at NASA, developing food and food packages for astronauts who flew on the space shuttle to the International Space Station.

In a related story, we hear how NASA developed a GPS auto-steer technology that enables farmers to create perfect rows when working in their fields.

This interview first aired on the May 2, 2015 “FFA Today” show on Rural Radio SiriusXM Channel 80.
