Virtual Mentoring Program

The Women@NASA have created a virtual mentoring program that uses Skype or Google Chat to pair NASA mentors with students in grades 5–8 anywhere in the country. The program gives young students the opportunity to interact and learn from real engineers, scientists, and technologists, who explore the many fields that contribute to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). Options for topics in the five-week program appear online. This video of a NASA GIRL building a model rocket with her family inspires the kind of joy STEM can stimulate. The Women@NASA hope that their stories will inspire girls everywhere to reach for the stars and explore the myriad of opportunities available to them through pursuing careers in STEM.
