Various subject matter experts from different NASA centers will be in the Digital Learning Network studios for a series of webcasts focusing on careers. Selected classrooms will be able to interact live with the scientists through the DLN cameras. Each event will be webcast to allow students from all over the world to watch the interviews. Any student can interact by sending questions via e-mail.
Experts will share their academic experiences from elementary through college and talk about what motivated them to pursue their careers. They will discuss where those career paths lead. Students and teachers will have an opportunity to learn about the variety of career choices at NASA — astronauts aren’t the only folks who work here! The schedule of events through March 2011 includes:
— March 16: Multiple NASA centers featuring Debbie Goodenow-Messman, electrical and nuclear engineer; Heather Hickman, aerospace engineer; and Amy Stalker, mechanical engineer.
— March 23: NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center featuring Katie Collins, research analyst with the Global Inventory Monitoring and Mapping Studies branch.
Each hour-long webcast event begins at 2 p.m. EDT.
