5th Grade Skypes with NASA

At Ursuline Academy, we give girls the opportunity to discover who they want to be. Our 5th grade Ursuline girls recently connected with NASA Chief Engineer, Louise Jandura via Skype. Louise is currently working on the Mars 2020 Rover in the Sampling and Caching Subsystem of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory. Students took notes on answers to questions they prepared for Louise regarding her choice in career path, the steps it took her to get there, her job duties, and what she likes to do for fun. The girls learned so much and were very excited to add this experience to their space and solar system studies!
