I feel like there is so much overlooked talent in our world. I feel from what I have witnessed in the world that blue-collar workers are often dismissed by the educated. I wonder what it would take to convince teachers to look in unexpected places for classroom experts.
Listen to a chat with Sharon Cooper, Asociate Chief of Mechanical Systems Division at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, MD. She has worked as a mechanical engineer with NASA for more than 30 years and started out with NASA after her dad suggested she apply there for an internship during her first year of college. She has a very encouraging message about women in STEM fields. Please tune in!
