Cady Coleman: Lessons from Space for GCC
A GCC STEM Week event! NASA astronaut and GCC Board member Cady Coleman talks about how we all play a role in STEM (science—technology—engineering—math) solutions, because we need diverse teams with diverse skills to solve tomorrow’s challenges—in space, on earth, and right here in Greenfield Community College. Coleman joined the U.S. Air Force as a Second Lieutenant while continuing her graduate work for a Ph.D. at the UMass-Amherst. In 1988 she entered active duty at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base as a research chemist. Coleman was selected by NASA in 1992 to join the NASA Astronaut Corps and has served on three space shuttle missions, including an extended duration mission to the International Space Station.
