Find Your STEM Role Model: Google+ Hangout

March 5, 2014 6:00PM to 7:15PM EST

There’s an old axiom that you can’t be what you can’t see. Perhaps if you think about what inspired you to enter into your current job, or line of study, you’ll recognize a role model or two that inspired you to take your current path.

That’s why NASA and the Energy Department are teaming up on Wednesday, March 5, 2014  at 1pm EST to host a Google+ Hangout, showcasing women in STEM at NASA and Energy that are changing the world and addressing the serious shortage of women and girls engaged in STEM fields in the United States, and showcasing strong role models for students of all genders.

Dr. Katie Gallagher, from NASA’s Office of the Chief Technologist will moderate a conversation for students, teachers, parents, and STEM educators. Director Dot Harris, Office of Economic Impact and Diversity at the Department of Energy, will be on the line with Dr. Rebecca Spyke-Keiser, Associate Deputy Administrator for Strategy and Policy at NASA; Jill Fuss, Scientist at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Stephanie Stilson , Engineer at Kennedy Space Center and NASA Headquarters, and a class at Andrew Jackson Middle School in Titusville, Florida, to discuss ways to find role models for young people in STEM fields and answer questions from students and the general public about STEM careers.

Join Women @ Energy  and Women @ NASA  to hear from women role models leading the way in transformative science, innovation, cutting-edge research, and combating climate change.
