NASA’s Digital Expansion to Engage the Public (DEEP) and Educator Professional Development Collaborative (EPDC) invite you to connect with NASA via a live video chat. NASA’s Kennedy Space Center Office of Education services the states of Florida and Georgia and the US Territories of Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands. NASA STARS en Español developed from a growing need to promote awareness of NASA’s diverse career opportunities for minority populations and highlight Hispanic professionals as role models in STEM careers. It was only appropriate to do it Spanish. This monthly webcast will be lived streamed in Spanish from Kennedy to Puerto Rico, through the US, and across the world. We invite you to participate with your STEM classes, Spanish classes, Spanish clubs, etc. by watching the live stream and Tweeting questions or register to participate as a remote live audience for an event. Bring your classroom into the conversation because Students Talking About Real STEM are the STARS of tomorrow.
