Show Notes

Parker is a rising junior in high school.  She has been interested in STEM for as long as she can remember, especially Aerospace Engineering.  She was recently accepted into a highly selective program at her school named the Odyssey Scholars Program, a two-year program in which students do an in-depth study of a subject of their choice.  For this program, she will be building a CubeSat, or a miniaturized satellite, that will measure the magnetic field of the Earth.
