NASA STEM Stars is a monthly web chat series that gives students ages 13+ the opportunity to connect with NASA Subject Matter Experts (SMEs). During the chat, students are encouraged to submit questions to be answered live by NASA SMEs. Each chat introduces a STEM career, addresses a STEM topic, or highlights a NASA mission. And each episode also highlights a STEM activity that students can do at home.
