Women of NASA: Virtual Take Our Daughters to Work Day
Thursday, April 27, 2000

See for full details.

The fifth annual Virtual Take Our Daughters to Work Day, sponsored by the NASA
Quest’s Women of NASA project, features select female leaders from a broad spectrum
of professions within NASA who will meet online with hundreds of students, parents, and
schools worldwide to discuss and celebrate opportunities, as well as gain insight into
the professional and personal aspects of their lives. We invite boys and girls to join us
and learn more about these exceptional women.

Participants may engage in conversations with the women by either a live QuestChat or
QuestForum. The live Questchats will feature one select women each hour on the
hour from 7:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. PDT / 10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. EST and
require pre-registration. The QuestForum is open throughout the day from 7:00 a.m.
– 3:00 p.m. PDT / 10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. EST and will feature a panel of eight women.

Please share this information with your learning community!
