Johnson Space Center’s (JSC) Education and Student Programs Office is
hosting the first annual Engineering Career Expo from 6-9 p.m. April 3,
2002, at Space Center Houston.

The event will provide a forum where 8th- through 12th-grade students
can learn more about careers in engineering — what they should be
studying in high school, what it takes to get into college, which
colleges offer degrees in engineering, what kinds of work-study programs
are available and what employers are looking for after they graduate –
and more.

NASA engineers and cooperative education students, along with
representatives from private industry and universities with colleges of
engineering, will provide literature, exhibits and demonstrations, and
be available to answer students’ questions.

The event is co-sponsored by JSC, Space Center Houston and Aerospace
Academy for Engineering and Teacher Education.

Confirmed participants include the University of Texas, Texas A&M, Texas
Tech, Prairie View A&M, Lamar, Baylor, the Texas Aerospace Academy, Wyle
Labs, GHG Corporation, Honeywell, and Titan Systems Corporations.

Parents, students, teachers and guidance counselors are invited to
attend. No advance registration is required.
