Dr. Aprille J. Ericsson is an aerospace engineer whose trailblazing work has taken her from a childhood in Brooklyn to a career at NASA. She is a graduate of MIT and of Howard University, where she became the first woman to receive a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering; and a recipient of the prestigious Washington Award, a distinction shared by household names like Bill Nye and Neil Armstrong. In this talk, she will discuss her contributions to cutting-edge space science and exploration and the importance of ensuring opportunities for diversity in the field, which can lead to amazing innovations. Join us for an afternoon with Dr. Ericsson to hear from a woman who’s expanding our knowledge of the world around us while making breakthroughs on the ground.
