Happy New Year, Women of NASA Project Participants-
Date: Tue, 18 Jan 2000, 08:56:54 -0800 (PST)

It is with great enthusiasm that I can tell you about our upcoming year 2000 events.  After many thoughtful replies from you and work with our advisory council, we have planned events that we hope will fit nicely in to your upcoming curriculum and teaching. Detailed information about all of these events can be found at: http://quest.arc.nasa.gov/women/99-00events.html

January will be a time for us to add more mentor profiles and update our pages. In February, Black History Month, we will focus our chats and Forums on African American women from NASA. We have seven chats and one three day Forum scheduled. National Engineers Week is also in February, from 2/21-2/25. During this week we have three scheduled chats with female engineers who do a wide variety of work with NASA. Our chat on 2/22 with aerospace engineer, Fanny Zuniga, will also be offered as a Spanish bilingual chat.

In March, Women's History Month, we will focus on NASA women who have contributed to math, science, and technology at NASA. This will also be a combination of chats, forums, and a webcast. Also in March, the Women in Aviation International convention will be held from 3/9-3/11.  Following the convention, we will host a week long series of interactive events featuring women from Dryden Flight Research Center. This will be during the week of 3/13-3/17. 

On April 27, 2000 we host another Virtual Take Our Daughters to Work Day. This year we have partnered with the Ms. Foundation; and our three esteemed astronauts, Eileen Collins, Ellen Ochoa, and Yvonne Cagle are the official spokeswomen for the event. Our day will focus and feature high profile, NASA women. You can see archives of previous years at:

Please remember that we have changed our chat software slightly and that many of our events do not require registration.  If an event states that registration is required, please do so in advance so you can be sure to have the correct URL, username, and password in time for the event.  Registration questions should be directed to Oran Cox, our Questchat manager at oran@quest.arc.nasa.gov.  As always, please feel free to send me any questions, concerns, or feedback about the project.  I hope that designing interactive events around specific themes will make it easier and more appropriate for you to join us.
