Reach Across the Stars: Meet Your Female Space & Science Heroes (virtually!) - Wednesday, January 27, 2020 @ noon MT
Virtually "meet" women who have blazed trails in space and related science fields in our upcoming webinar to celebrate National Mentoring Month, highlighting the achievements of women in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).
This webinar will consist of a panel with STEM professionals and scientists who are featured in a free augmented reality (AR) app designed to allow users to explore the universe and unlock the often-overlooked stories of women and their contributions to space exploration and science.
The project, "Reach Across the Stars: A Universe of Explorers," was created through a collaboration between the Smithsonian’s Because of Her Story Initiative and NASA. During the webinar, and in further exploration in the app, you’ll get to hear about the challenges, motivations and even the hobbies of these scientists and STEM professionals, while getting a behind the scenes glimpse at their work.
