Women in STEAM in Space, Panel Discussion

Lisa Rosenberg joins a diverse group of women from NASA, SETI, and the arts, to talk about the work they do and their career paths. Engage with engineers, biologists, artists, and people in other fields that surprisingly link with space programs. It takes more than just rocket scientists to be part of space missions. Bring your questions and curiosity. The panel, hosted by SETI’s Margaret Race, is part of a day-long offering of hands-on activities and more, all about women doing incredible work in STEAM careers in space. For tickets and further details, please see: Cabot Space & Science Center’s Women’s History Month programs; Facebook Event Listing.
