Dakota Van Deursen Builds Rockets and Better World

St. Paul’s Alumnus Dakota Van Deursen is building rockets and developing a brighter future for his classmates at Stevens Institute of Technology. He’s putting his bachelor’s degree in Chemical Engineering (and soon-to-be master’s degree in Materials Science and Engineering) to good use designing, testing, and eventually launching a rocket into space. Even with a knack for science, though, he continues advocating for social justice.
