Students and teachers have an opportunity to learn about the wide variety of career choices at NASA — astronauts aren’t the only folks who work at NASA! NASA employees representing various projects and missions will be in the Digital Learning Network studios for a series of webcasts focusing on careers. They will share their academic experiences from elementary school through college and talk about what motivated them to pursue their careers.
Each event will be webcast to allow students from all over the world to watch the interviews. Any student can interact by sending questions via e-mail.
Inquiries about the DLiNFocus series should be directed to Caryn Long . Link to the NES Virtual Campus home page.
The schedule of events through December is:
— Dec. 1: Marshall Space Flight Center featuring Tristan Curry — Aerospace Engineer.
— Dec. 8: Dryden Flight Research Center featuring Kathleen Stanton — Nurse.
— Dec. 15: Glenn Research Center featuring Mike Foreman — former astronaut and current Chief of External Programs at GRC.
Each hour-long webcast event begins at 2 p.m. EST.
Sign up today to become a part of this exciting opportunity to meet NASA employees live!
