How does an English major end up working for NASA?

Korine Powers, an education and outreach coordinator for the Exploration and Space Communications, started her career with NASA as a summer intern developing professional and educational offerings for the Space Communications and Navigation Internship Project (SIP). In January 2022, she began working for NASA full-time while working towards her English PhD at Boston University. In her current role, Powers helps manage Goddard Space Flight Center's SIP cohort, develops outreach events and activities for upcoming SCaN missions, and increases excitement about NASA and SIP with educators and learners of all ages.

Join Korine to learn more about her path from BU to NASA. She'll also discuss NASA's work beyond astronauts, the different NASA centers, and the value of a Humanities background in a STEM workplace. Feel free to ask her your own spacey (and communications-y) questions!

Interested in learning more about the internship that started it all? Join Korine again for the 2:00pm SCaN Internship Project information session that follows.
