Today "Es El Momento"


During this tough economy, business partnerships are the way to go. Businesses are always looking for ways to partner with media organizations to spread their message. And NASA is no different! Last Tuesday, NASA announced a partnership with Univision Communications Inc. to improve high school graduation rates, prepare Hispanic students for college, and encourage them to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, or STEM, disciplines.

The partnership called "Es El Momento" is an extension of NASA's current education efforts to engage underrepresented and underserved students in the critical STEM fields. This is a great way to get young Latinos engaged in higher education and a great way to introduce them to science & technology careers.

This actually reminds me of "F.I.R.S.T. Robotics" when I was in high school. Their mission is to inspire young people to be science and technology leaders, by engaging them in exciting mentor-based programs that build science, engineering and technology skills, that inspire innovation, and that foster well-rounded life capabilities including self-confidence, communication, and leadership.
