To celebrate Women's History Month, NASA recently unveiled a new website that features women in NASA careers telling their stories in their own words. The website has 32 video interviews with women of diverse backgrounds who represent different aspects of the agency's work. Subjects include NASA Deputy Administrator Lori Garver, astronauts, engineers and scientists. They discuss their accomplishments and offer encouragement to women and girls considering technical careers so they can become the trailblazers of tomorrow. The site also provides information about NASA internships and career opportunities.View External Website
Fewer American students are going into the sciences, engineering and quantitative disciplines in college and beyond (NSF, 2004). Programmatic, instructional and curriculum successes have not led to expected increases in the numbers and diversity of those achieving at high levels and going into careers in the sciences and quantitative disciplines. We are winning some battles but losing the war. The Engagement, Capacity and Continuity Trilogy (ECC Trilogy) explores why our successes are not translating into more progress, and more importantly, proposes what different stakeholders can do about it. 6_trilogy-summary.pdf
