Girl Scouts of Colorado thanks the Women’s Impact Network at Lockheed Martin for participating in our “Meet an Expert” webinar series on November 17 and 18, 2020. More than 300 Girl Scouts from all over the country participated and learned about the space industry, careers at Lockheed Martin, and what the future of space exploration looks like. Panelists from Lockheed Martin included:
- Lauren McCulley, Spacecraft Design Engineer
- Shelby Hopkins, Systems Engineer
- Kari Van Zyl, RF Engineer
- Kaitlyn Britt, Human Factors Engineer
- Danielle Leonard, Financial Analyst
Each panelist introduced herself and spoke to the girls about what she does at Lockheed Martin. Then, the girls were led through a short lesson about space exploration. After the presentation, the panelists answered questions that girls submitted in advance and live in the chat box. Girls asked all different kinds of questions from, “What did you study in school?” and, “Are you good at math?” to, “Will we colonize the Moon one day?”.
Girl Scouts who participated live earned a special Lockheed Martin and Girl Scouts patch. Missed the live sessions? Watch the recorded webinars linked below. Watching the recordings meets the requirements for the “Meet an Expert” patch and the new STEM Career Exploration Badges for Brownies, Juniors, and Cadettes.
