STEM Champion & Congresswoman Donna Edwards (MD-4th District) welcomes ASTRA's Executive Director Dr. Robert S. Boege and ASTRA's Senior Advisor & Futurist Dr. Ronnie Lowenstein to her Blast Off! STEM Education Event on March 4.
The Blast Off! Forum, held in the Rayburn House Office Building, convened education leaders and STEM policy experts from across the region and the 4th District of Maryland. Boege discussed ASTRA's Maryland State STEM Education Report Card for 2014, STEM Jobs, and Maryland's future for technology-based economic growth as part of a panel during the event. Dr. Lowenstein facilitated ASTRA's role in the meeting — part of ASTRA's expanding role in fostering STEM talent development and engaging local organizations to connect with one another.
