African-American History Month Profiles

In observance of National African American History Month and Engineers Week, NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland will host a live webcast for K-12 teachers and students. Students will interact live with African-American engineers and scientists who will discuss what sparked their career choices and how students can prepare for future careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics fields. This webcast occurs on Feb. 22, 2012, at 1 p.m. EST. During the month of February GSFC will release two videos featuring Dr. Aprille Ericsson and James Fraction. We want you to actually see what engineers do during the day. This is a great opportunity for educators and students to learn more about engineering careers at NASA.
