NASA Women Take Part in Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day
Female scientists and technical experts from across NASA will celebrate Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day on Feb. 22 by taking to the agency’s Digital Expansion to Engage the Public (DEEP) network and connecting with thousands of students throughout the U.S. and elsewhere.
Anchored by NASA’s Kennedy Space Center, DEEP will provide classrooms with live access to women from around the agency who are leaders in their fields. In 30-minute blocks, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. EST, they’ll speak about their NASA careers and experiences as women in STEM fields, then answer questions from students.
Among the NASA experts making presentations will be Janet Petro, KSC's deputy director; Dr. Gioia Massa, life science project scientist for the Vegetable Production System (Veggie); and Janet Gobaira, Kennedy flight systems engineer (en Espanol).
NASA's participation in Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day is one of many events highlighting National Engineers Week (Feb. 18-24) and coincides with the worldwide celebration of Girl Day on Feb. 22.
