She’s a Scientist “SOFTWARE ENGINEER”                                                        CSA
She’s a Scientist is a series of inspirational workshops with hands-on experiences featuring
female guest speakers from the fields of science, technology, engineering and/or math
“STEM”. These are personal workshops – with both biographical and career information
and time for in-depth questions as to what inspires these women, what compelled them to
choose their career, and what keeps them interested and engaged. Role models are the
best ambassadors for communicating information about the wide range of careers that are
available to young women today. Hands-on projects can spark an interest in STEM, but on
their own, they may not lead to a real career interest in these fields. These role models can
inspire girls and help them to make informed decisions about their future. After all, it’s one
thing to talk about engineering or technology, it is quite another for a girl to meet an
engineer or scientist (particularly a female) and learn first-hand about their lives.
This workshop features a Software Engineer who is employed by United Space Alliance
“USA”. She has worked on software that monitors the Shuttle and ground information and
currently maintains the simulation system used to check-out the Shuttle Ground Procedures
and Launch Team Training. She is also a web designer and will work with the girls on
understanding web design. Her work with USA is a valuable piece of the United States
space program but a little more difficult to provide a hands-on experience. She will
however share her passion for the program and her involvement as a software engineer.

inspire girls and help them to make informed decisions about their future. After all, it’s one
thing to talk about engineering or technology, it is quite another for a girl to meet an
engineer or scientist (particularly a female) and learn first-hand about their lives.
