At my college, Morgan State University, I am one of only two women who major in this physics class!
Connections To Me
I checked out a book, The Boys First Book On Electronics, at the age of 8. When Lucia was around that age, she liked to read books that involved science and sometimes technology as well
In 1976, I attended an exhibit and on display was a light bulb that was removed from its socket, but still lit. This inspired me to build the illusion transmitter that is still used today
Valerie was also awarded later in her life the NASA Equal Opportunity Medal and the GSFC (Goddard Space Flight Center) Award of Merit
I'm very interested in Science, experiments and inventing things like Valerie. She also lived in Maryland, and I went to Maryland once with my family
Valerie began a positon at NASA, as a mathematical/data analyst and after that, she later served as the Space Physics Anaylisis Network(SPAN) project manager. Now SPAN is a big part of todays science networking and internet
