NASA GIRLS and BOYS
Women@NASA has created a one-of-a-kind experience for middle school students to be mentored virtually through Skype or Google chat by NASA employees. He or she may be an engineer, an accountant, an astronaut, a trainer, or a mission controller. You will complete online lessons for five weeks, covering the topics of science, technology, engineering, and math.
Aspire to Inspire
NASA’s vision for Aspire 2 Inspire is to reach out to young girls and present some of the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) career opportunities through the real lives and jobs of early career women at NASA. This is not to say that NASA is or should be the ultimate goal of anyone entering a STEM field. Far from that, this effort is intended to show that regardless of what specific industry a young girl desires to end up in, there truly are opportunities in STEM that are real and rewarding.
NASA Goddard Space Flight Center offers a five day Summer Institute in Science, Engineering, and Research (SISTER) for the purpose of increasing the awareness of and providing opportunities for middle school girls to explore non-traditional career fields with research scientists, mathematicians and engineers.
Women Firsts in SpaceThis website is maintained by the NASA History Program Office and provides facts on “women firsts” in space history. The website also offers a printer friendly version of the page so it can be used as a factsheet.
Women@NASA Brochure: Present
This handout features four women who work for NASA today. This brochure can be used to inspire girls and young women to consider STEM careers. The stories of these women can be read and heard in their entirety by visiting the site given in the brochure.
