Michelle ThallerThis will be an interactive discussion with key NASA staff, Ellen Stofan, Tony Springer, and Michelle Thaller for whom STEM is a priority. You will participate in a discussion how to get more students to pursue STEM and the mismatch between student education levels and actual skills on the job. The voices of students and those in their early and mid careers are important and will enable the U.S. Physics Team alumni to talk to NASA about STEM educational preparation and workforce readiness. Students and alumni will benefit greatly from hearing about the skills required to work at NASA.
