Well today they had the beautiful and talented Mary J. Blige who was there to discuss how she and her organization FFAWN are focused on educating young girls.
FFAWN and NASA are collaborating for The Summer of Innovation project. With one of their primary focuses being to get more young girls interested in science, math and engineering. These are the careers of the future and we need to see more young girls interested in these fields of tomorrow.
