Faces of Texas GEAR UP: Gaspar

Launching rockets. Building robots. Taking college courses in high school. Gaspar is a kid with many, many talents. This sophomore from Presidio will have earned his college associate’s degree by the end of his junior year…in high school. His dream is to create a vaccine for AIDS someday—and to change the educational history of his whole family. In the meantime, Gaspar will just keep shooting rockets up into the sky literally every day. Watch the video to see the man in action (and get ready for some serious egg-based suspense).
