NASA Collaborates To Engage Hispanic Students



WASHINGTON -- NASA and Univision Communications Inc. are teaming up to 
launch an on-air and online initiative to help engage Hispanic 
students in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) 
education. 

NASA is committed to preparing the next generation of scientists, 
engineers and technologists. Univision, a leading Spanish-language 
media company with television, radio, online and interactive assets 
focused on improving graduation rates and preparing Hispanic students 
for college. 

Beginning Saturday, Oct. 2, Univision will air a series of 
Spanish-language educational video segments produced by NASA and 
titled "NASA and You" (NASA y Tu). Featuring Hispanic employees from 
NASA as role models, the 30-second videos will present new 
perspectives on education and STEM careers. Among many featured NASA 
staff members are astronaut Jose Hernandez, who talks about his life 
and how he became an astronaut, and Margaret Dominguez, an optics 
engineer, who talks about the engineering challenges of putting a 
mirror as large as a tennis court in small spacecraft. 

"NASA's challenging missions offer a unique opportunity to inspire 
excellence in students of every age," said NASA Deputy Administrator 
Lori Garver. "This collaboration will combine NASA's unique STEM 
educational content with Univision's communications platforms to 
reach Hispanic youth and encourage them to pursue STEM-related 
careers." 

The segments will air on Saturday mornings on the Univision children's 
block "Planeta U." They are part of the company's comprehensive, 
multi-platform, three-year national education initiative called Es El 
Momento (The Moment is Now). 

Through Es El Momento, Univision is working to improve academic 
achievement among kindergarten through 12th grade Hispanic students. 
It is focused specifically on increasing high school graduation 
rates, college readiness and completion while engaging Hispanic 
parents and the broader Hispanic community in these efforts.
