From SciGirls: “SciGirls in Space looks to create space science experiences for girls that will broaden their STEM participation, build positive STEM identity, and increase understanding of scientific concepts, while exploring the wonder and scientific adventures occurring at NASA centers across the nation.

Programs will feature girls partnering with NASA women role models to explore the science of microgravity, lunar and Mars exploration, and more! Participating middle school-aged girls and their families will have the chance to engage with NASA-aligned SciGirls activities and interact with NASA women role models to learn more about space science career paths.”
