Historical Spacewoman Speaks in Jefferson City
JEFFERSON CITY - The first woman of color to voyage into space spoke today in Jefferson City. Mae Jemison spoke at the science edcuation summit convention about why diversity in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) matters and how it affects every person. "Science literacy is important for everyone because we all have to read articles in the newspaper about the environment," said Jemison. "We have to figure out how to make nutritious meals for ourselves. We have to interact with computers and equipment." Jemison served six years as a NASA astronaut and flew aboard the space shuttle endeavour in September of 1992.
