Encourages Girls To Pursue STEM Careers
NASA has expanded its Women@NASA
website to include Aspire 2 Inspire, a new feature aimed at helping
middle school girls explore education and careers in science,
technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields.
The site features four short films and one overview film that
explore the careers and backgrounds of early-career women who work
for NASA in each of the STEM areas. A list of community
organizations and NASA-affiliated outreach programs with a STEM
emphasis also is available. The site also features four Twitter
feeds where visiting girls can interact with and submit questions
to the young women featured in the films.
"We have an opportunity to reach out to the next generation and
inspire today's girls to pursue science and technology careers,"
said Rebecca Keiser, the agency's associate director for
agency-level policy integration and representative to the White
House Council on Women and Girls. "Expanding opportunities in these
fields will give our country perspectives and expertise that will
help us out-innovate, out-educate and out-build the world. It's key
to our future."
