Women in Space

OK NASA Space Grant

The indefatigable Adrienne Jablonski let us know of an amazing opportunity.  It’s for any women undergrads interested in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math).

The Oklahoma NASA Space Grant is hosting a Women in Science event this October at the Science Museum of Oklahoma.  You’ll spend the day hobnobbing with women of science at all stages of their careers.  It sounds like a great opportunity!

Here’s the details from Professor Yuan:

Dear Female Students with interests in pursuing Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) fields,

Oklahoma NASA Space Grant is organizing Women in Science 2012 on October 9, 2012 in Science Museum of Oklahoma. Ambassadors will receive $100 award, a NASA Space Grant T-Shirt, and a luncheon for the day. While this year’s keynote speaker has not been confirmed, former astronauts often spoke in the annual meeting.   Must be US citizens and full-time female college students.   To apply, please fill out the attached forms and email to Professor May Yuan.  NASA Space Grant has allocated 6 ambassadors and 3 alternatives for OU.   The deadline for application is August 31, 2012.
