2020 BEYA Stars and Stripes STEM Career Day: Veterans Give to the Nation
The K-12 virtual career day will feature leading professionals, including David L. Brewer, a retired vice-admiral of the United States Navy and former superintendent of the Los Angeles Unified School District, the second-largest public school district in the United States.
The keynote speaker for the virtual event is Maj. Gen. Charles Frank Bolden, Jr., former administrator of The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).
As an administrator (2009-2017), Bolden led a NASA team to advance the missions of the U.S. space program. Bolden’s 34-year career with the Marine Corps also included 14 years as a member of NASA’s Astronaut Office. After joining the office in 1980, he traveled to orbit four times aboard the space shuttle between 1986 and 1994, commanding two of the missions and piloting two others. His flights included the deployment of the Hubble Space Telescope and the first joint U.S.-Russian shuttle mission, which featured a cosmonaut as a member of his crew.
According to the Census Bureau, which measures ‘America’s people, places, and economy’ STEM occupations include computer and mathematical occupations, engineers, engineering technicians, life scientists, physical scientists, social scientists, science technicians, and STEM managers.
