  • A NATIONAL PROBLEMWHY YOU ARE HEREWE HAVE A SEVERE SHORTAGE OF SCIENTISTS AND ENGINEERSYOUR HELP IS URGENTLY NEEDED

  • CRITICAL SHORTAGE LOOMSNASAs Administrator recently stated that30 to 50 % of NASA scientists could retire in the next 3 to 5 yearsThe current pool of possible replacements in colleges is sorely inadequate in real numbersThe pool of minorities and women is even more limited

  • THE OPPORTUNITYCAREERS will be available to qualified applicantsThe hiring frenzy will provide NASA and other agencies with an opportunity to DIVERSIFY as never beforeNASA AiS & TSU can aid in this STRATEGIC effort

  • A PROPOSAL TO ATTRACT UNDERSERVED MINORITIES TO SCIENCE & MATHMATICSA Mountain to climb to bring:African AmericansSpanish AmericansAmerican IndiansBack to their roots in the study or WHATS OUT THERE
