Looking to the Stars for STEM-Learning Inspiration

So I was delighted when, earlier this year, my friend who works at Warner Bros. Pictures told me about an upcoming film starring Sandra Bullock as an engineer in the Sci-Fi film, Gravity, opening October 4. How perfect, I thought, to illuminate the power of STEM education by combining a strong female role model playing an engineer (Bullock plays Dr. Ryan Stone, a brilliant engineer on her first shuttle mission), with the natural wonder and awe that comes from images of outer space. Fresh out of the Venice Film Festival, Gravity is getting rave reviews.
