Captain Barrington Irving has traveled to 50 countries, conducted more than 30 STEM expeditions, and  successfully challenged middle school students to build a car faster than a Ferrari 430 and then high schoolers to build a plane he flew on its test flight. In 2007, he set two world records—at age 23—as the youngest person and first black pilot to fly solo around the world. He has a passion to explore, inspire, and educate others. Now 32, Barrington has developed a Flying Classroom curriculum (flyingclassroom.com) that transforms the way students learn STEM: in following his global expeditions, they engage in problem-solving activities that enable them to overcome new challenges.
