NASA Engages with Indigenous Students at AISES Conference

The 2018 American Indian Science & Engineering Society (AISES) Conference was held October 3-6 in Oklahoma City. The NASA Office of Diversity and Equal Opportunity (ODEO) and Minority University Research and Education Project (MUREP) were conference sponsors, seeking to increase American Indian and Alaskan Native (AIAN) students in STEM through career and resume workshops, as well as a career fair for more than 2,000 students.

The NASA team, with participants from six NASA Centers, engaged with indigenous students at the Riverside Bureau of Indian Education School at an outreach event in Anadarko, Oklahoma. The NASA team directly connected with 160 students through STEM engagement activities promoting science and engineering.
