When girls see women in science they get big ideas – ideas about how they can break stereotypes and follow their role models to study (and teach) Science, Tech, Engineering and Math (STEM) We hear from local filmmakers Renee Sotile and Mary-Jo Godges about their project with the California Science Center to bring their award-winning documentary ‘Reach for the Stars’ – about NASA’s first Teacher in Space, Christa McAuliffe and the Challenger – to schools.
