Web Site of the Week: Women @ NASA

There are many women working at NASA in a variety of settings, and this website tells the story of 32 such talented individuals. As the site notes, visitors will “hear stories of women overcoming almost every obstacle imaginable to pursue their dreams and make a difference in the world.” This particular site was relaunched in response to the Executive Order signed on March 11, 2009, which established the White House Council on Women and Girls. Visitors to the homepage will find a grid of the women’s stories, and each comes with a brief description. Each video features one of these individuals discussing their own background, personal career trajectory, and time at NASA. The site is informative and inspirational, and it’s one that can be used in a variety of educational settings. [KMG]
