Event Details

The Astronaut Scholarship Foundation is excited to present an exclusive Live Chat with former NASA Astronaut Heidemarie Stefanyshyn-Piper on Tuesday, July 25 at 2:00 PM EST for elementary-age children and their educators/parents/guardians.


This Live Chat series is presented in the honor of Scott Carpenter, one of the original Mercury Seven Astronauts and a founding member of the Astronaut Scholarship Foundation. He believed in the importance of education and inspiring future generations to pursue their passions in STEM fields.

Your students will have the opportunity to ask questions and engage in discussions with a real-life female astronaut, which will undoubtedly spark their curiosity about STEM fields beyond just aerospace.
