Sally Ride Science logo From Astrobiology to Zoology: Igniting Students’ Interests in Science Careers
Two teachers show their "huff and puff mobile" created as part of one of the educational activities at the symposium.

During this half-day symposium, Sally Ride Science scientists and education specialists talked to the audience about the wide variety of STEM careers available, the many paths to becoming a scientist, and the vibrant men and women involved in science today. The presenters also performed activities that enhanced the participants' knowledge about science careers and served as models for activities the teachers could do with their students in the classroom. The program was designed for teachers of grades 6-9. All participants received educational materials from Sally Ride Science, including a book and an educational poster focusing on science careers.


This symposium was held at the NSTA Area Conference on Science Education in Detroit, MI. Sally Ride Science is a science content company dedicated to supporting girls’ and boys’ interests in science, math and technology.
