Path to the Stars with Sylvia Acevedo, CEO of Girl Scouts of the USA
Join Girl Scouts of Alaska and Girl Scouts of the USA CEO Sylvia Acevedo for a fun, hands-on rocket activity and presentation at the library!
Girls will hear Sylvia's story about growing up in an underprivileged neighborhood and how her life was changed by Girl Scouts. She went on to become one of the first Latinx to graduate with a master's degree in engineering from Stanford University and go on to work at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory! Sylvia has also worked as an IBM engineer and is now a CEO and author.
Sylvia's new book about her journey to NASA, "Path to the Stars," will be available for purchase at the event. There will be a meet and greet and opportunity to have your book signed by Sylvia.
