Women Fly! is the Museum of Flight's annual event for young women in middle and high school who are interested in aviation and aerospace careers.

Girls are invited to participate in a day of motivational and career-oriented activities at the museum. Dozens of women flight and aerospace professionals: airport operators, pilots, air traffic controllers, and engineers will be available to meet and answer questions.

The event is between 8:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.,  March 8, at the museum at 9404 East Marginal Way S. in Seattle.

Dr. Ashley Stroupe, of NASA, is one of the professionals who will appear. Stroupe, an engineer, works at the Jet Propulsion Laboratories on the Mars Rover.

She recently appeared on “Five Years on Mars” on the National Geographic Channel. For more, go to www.museumofflight.org.
