    Please share with your students!!!!

     

    Are you an undergraduate or graduate student who dreams of working for NASA after graduation? Well, guess what, NASA has been dreaming about you, too! So much so that the NASA Office of STEM Engagement has planned an hour-long livestreaming broadcast on NASA TV  to tell you all about the future of space work at the Agency and the many paths to get you working there!

     

    You will hear from the head of NASA of himself, Administrator Jim Bridenstine, as well as from working astronauts both on the planet and currently in space on the International Space Station! They might even answer your question live on the air (submit questions here by April 20th: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/Future_of_Space). Young career professionals at NASA will talk to you about the work they are doing and how they made it to NASA. So as you engage in your hectic end-of-semester projects and final exams, consider scheduling one of your breaks to focus on your future and why you work so hard to begin with!
