“Raise your hand and volunteer and try new experiences when they come along.” Captain Kay Hire is the epitome of the “We Can Do It!” attitude. From being the first woman in the U.S. military to be assigned to a combat position, the 34th woman to travel in space, she has done it all.
Rosie Riveters’ program participants, ranging in age from five to 14, got the amazing opportunity to hear from and ask questions of former NASA astronaut and Captain in the U.S. Navy Reserve, Kay Hire. Captain Kay shared all kinds of amazing insights with our participants. Ranging from what she liked to do in her “free time” in space to how to send your name to the moon!
We could not be more excited to share our Rosie Talks interview with this incredible woman. For more information on some of the awesome resources Captain Kay Hire shared during her presentation, check out the resources below.
A big thank you to the AstraFemina organization for connecting us with Captain Hire!
