Wonder Women of STEM - April 26, 2012

Join The JASON Project and the American Association of University Women (AAUW) for a day of live webcasts featuring two women who exemplify excellence in "STEM"-science, technology, engineering and math. Our featured guests are Christianne Corbett and Lisa Lord.

Learn more and access the live event on the Wonder Women of STEM event page on the JASON Project website.

Christianne Corbett (10am and 2pm ET)Christianne Corbett
Christi earned a degree in engineering and became an aerospace engineer. Her passion to help more girls and women enter into engineering led to her accepting her current position as Senior Researcher at AAUW, where she co-authored the highly acclaimed research report "Why So Few? Women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math." She will share her personal experiences as an engineer, and her research findings which are critical for anyone currently in, or considering, a career in engineering.

Lisa Lord (12pm and 4pm ET)Lisa Lord
Lisa, a Cyber Information Assurance Analyst with Northrop Grumman, helps protect our nation's top secret information. Cyber Security is one of the fastest growing technical careers available today. Learn how Lisa's unexpected educational and professional path has made her a highly valued expert in this exciting industry.

Be sure to tune in to the live webcasts on
Thursday, April 26, 2012 at 10:00am, 12:00pm, 2:00pm, or 4:00pm (all times Eastern) to learn about Christi, Lisa and their work!

More about the "Wonder Women of STEM" Live Event

How do I watch the live event?
To view the live event, go to the live event page shortly before the event start time and click on the live event link. This will take you to a page where you can view the live event. We recommend using just one computer to view the live event, preferably connected to a projector so your students can all watch.

What do I need to watch the event?
All you need to view the event is a computer with a broadband internet connection and Flash installed. We strongly recommend testing your setup in the days prior to viewing the live event. You can test your setup now by visiting the live event page and clicking the "Test your connection" link.

How do I submit questions for the event?
You can submit questions live via text during the event.

How can I ensure my students' questions are asked during the event?
We receive so many questions for live events that unfortunately we cannot pass all of them along to our guests. However there are some things you can do to give your questions a better chance of being asked:
  • Learn about our guests' fields and topics. Our moderators are always looking for questions that will take us deeper into the subject areas, rather than just skim the surface of them.
  • Be unique! Think of interesting, outside-the-box questions that will provide for an interesting answer from our guests.
Who can I contact if I have questions about the event?
Please e-mail [address removed] if you have any questions about the event. We're here to help!
