Thirty education and STEM-industry professionals, including former astronaut Dr. Bonnie Dunbar and HISD Board of Education member Manuel Rodriguez, spoke about the importance of a STEM education and encouraged students to take classes related to science, technology, engineering, and math to prepare to enter a highly technical work force.

The event was sponsored by a partnership between Gathering of Eagles, Inc. and the Houston Military Affairs Committee.
