OSIRIS-REx Celebrates Women in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math
The OSIRIS-REx Team has developed several resources for promoting celebrating women in STEM careers.
OSIRIS-REx Women Inspiring Innovation Through Imagination
Some of the women on the OSIRIS-REx team take a chance to share their roles on the mission as well as thoughts on what it means to be a woman in a Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) field.
We have booklists to encourage reading about women in science. One features asteroids in non-fiction and fiction, while another contains biographies of women in science as well as women in science fiction.
Finally, we have two resources provided by NASA. The first is a booklist on space science, with a variety of topics. The second is a resource list of planetary books.
These PowerPoint shows feature the biographies of women scientists, engineers, and mission managers. One is of women in planetary science, while the other is of women who play a role on the OSIRIS-REx Mission.
A PowerPoint show is a non-editable PowerPoint file which will only open in presentation mode.
This word search features the names of women space scientists and provides information about their fields of work.
Biographies of Women in Space Science
The OSIRIS-REx E/PO team has compiled biographies of just some of the women in space sciences. The first link is a 46.6 MB zipped file which allows a user to save all profiles at once. If desired, each profile may be downloaded individually from the other links which contain the name of the woman being highlighted.
