Rockets Rock!

Hello World!
So tonight I saw a rocket launch. I just love seeing them, they are such a work of art and engineering. 

A symphony of diverse parts, pieces, and people coming together at the right time and place to achieve something grand. Whether they launch supplies, satellites, or people- rockets are needed to keep our life as we know it going. How amazing to be a part of that! 

One of my really cool rocket scientist colleagues has a great non profit program for teens to engage in high altitude launches, you can check it out here

Or you might be interested in reading the fascinating story of the first female rocket scientist, shown below 

There are still women making history, such as Abrille, a rocket scientist you can read more about here

I hope you will launch into STEM whoever you are and whatever you do, because rockets rock!
