The Dallas (TX) Chapter of The Links, Incorporated will travel to NASA in Houston, Texas with 40 female middle and high school STEAM Scholars who are participating in their award winning STEAM Academy program. This inaugural experience will expose the scholars to all NASA has to offer – hands on STEM activities through The STARS & STEM program labs, lunch with an astronaut – ideally who looks like them, tram rides and more! We are creating a pipeline to STEAM education and ultimately STEAM careers for these young women of color.
With support from Capital One, Linda Todd, President of the Dallas Chapter of The Links, Inc says “Capitol One’s assistance is a vital part of our efforts to expose our STEAM scholars to new STEM experiences such as this trip to NASA where they will participate in 3 laboratory experiments. The scholars will also visit Texas Southern University where they will participate in a panel entitled “Improving the Pathways to STEM Careers and Degrees for Girls”. This real world NASA experience encourages our scholars to Dream big!
