Women@NASA Adds Aspire 2 Inspire for Middle School Girls Interested in STEM Careers
The purpose of the new section, Aspire 2 Inspire, is to get female students thinking early about STEM areas they might be interested in pursuing. The section includes:
- Five videos that look at the careers of women who work for NASA, and an overview of the program;
- A rundown with links to STEM-related outreach programs affiliated with NASA, such as Aerospace Scholars, Educators Online Network, and Interdisciplinary National Science Project Incorporating Research and Education Experience (INSPIRE), and a list of related community organizations, such as Society of Women Engineers, Sally Ride Science, and 10 x 10; and
- Four Twitter feeds, so middle school girls can communicate with the women featured in the videos and read daily tweets discussing unique aspects of their jobs.
