Educating our youth
We are always concerned with educating our youth and making sure our kids get into higher education, but it's difficult getting them engaged. It's one thing to tell your son or daughter to do this or that but when corporations get involved, you know you have a great opportunity there. That's why I'm glad to hear NASA and Univision are teaming up to engage Hispanic students.
NASA and Univision Communications Inc. are teaming up to launch an on-air and online initiative to help engage Hispanic students in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education. Beginning Saturday, Oct. 2, Univision will air a series of Spanish-language educational video segments produced by NASA and titled "NASA and You" (NASA y Tu). Featuring Hispanic employees from NASA as role models, the 30-second videos will present new perspectives on education and STEM careers. This is all part of Univision's exciting program "Es el momento".
Again start educating those younger than you. It's important to keep Latinos in the forefront of education and studying everything offered. I sometimes feel as though Latinos tend to go towards the liberal arts, social work, etc. I'm glad NASA is taking this opportunity to work with Univision.
