The event will begin no later than 5:15 PM. Validated parking is available. Guests can bring their parking tickets in for validation.
Funded by NASA’s MUREP INCLUDES, PATHS (Partners Aligned To Heighten Broad Participation in STEM) aims to broaden participation in STEM fields in Massachusetts and develop multiple pathways for students to succeed by enhancing the supportive culture of a broad coalition of partners (including academia, non-profits, government entities, industry and individuals). Led by two minority-serving institutions–University of Massachusetts Boston and Bunker Hill Community College–NASA PATHS is created to center BIPOC voices, foster visions for change, and promotes BIPOC leadership within STEM pathways.
The NASA PATHS Storytelling Program is led by Prof. Shirley Tang and supported by her Digital Storytelling Team (Nia Duong, Parmita Gurung, Ammany Ty, Kim Soun Ty) at UMB, in consultation with Profs. Maria Puente (BHCC), Crystal Schaaf (UMB) and Cedric Woods (UMB).
