Wanda M. Austin, President and CEO of The Aerospace Corporation,

The work of  Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) professionals has led to some of the greatest achievements in human history, yet the general public is far too often unaware of their accomplishments. This is an issue of marketing – not an issue of content. The way we present STEM in America needs to change. It needs to be more inclusive, engaging, and relevant. The space industry has a large role to play in shaping the public perception of STEM, as do teachers, students, artists, and filmmakers alike. Everyone can, and must, contribute.
