Women of NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md., are highlighted in a new book and a set of six posters in an exhibit at the Maryland Women’s Heritage Center.
The book features 103 Goddard women in STEM careers. STEM is an acronym for science, technology, engineering and math and encouraging students to study these subjects is the focus of NASA’s education program. All Goddard women in STEM careers were asked to contribute a photograph, a short career description, and a quote for a one-page profile in the book.
This is really awesome, not only because it’s discussing women in STEM careers, but also because it’s pieced together from women speaking in their own words, which always makes me happy.
