STEM Women speaks to Candy Torres about working as an Engineer in the early space shuttle programs and her current efforts to inspire girls in STEM. Candy worked at NASA's Johnson Space Center on software for the Space Shuttle in the late 1970s and 1980s, and later for the International Space Station. Candy tells us what it was like being a woman of Puerto Rican background trying to get into engineering. We also discuss what we can do to encourage young Latina girls to become involved in engineering and, more broadly, how we can support minority women to contribute to space programs.
