For all the diversity of NASA's workforce, the question, "How can I become an astronaut?" is very common. The answer depends on where you are now and where you want to go.
If you haven't finished high school yet, former astronaut Dr. Sally K. Ride has these suggestions for you:
"The most important steps that I followed were studying math and science in school. I was always interested in physics and astronomy and chemistry, and I continued to study those subjects through high school and college on into graduate school. That's what prepared me for being an astronaut; it actually gave me the qualifications to be selected to be an astronaut. I think the advice that I would give to any kids who want to be astronauts is to make sure that they realize that NASA is looking for people with a whole variety of backgrounds: they are looking for medical doctors, microbiologists, geologists, physicists, electrical engineers. So find something that you really like and then pursue it as far as you can and NASA is apt to be interested in that profession."
If you've graduated from college or are in the military, and you're ready to apply, here's how.As a day care owner you will have a rewarding, challenging career where you'll see the results of your caring and creative efforts every day. You'll be rewarded by the joy of children's laughter, and by watching them grow into independent, unique individuals.
You'll be inspired by your ability each day to help children meet new challenges, learn new things, and discover the world around them.
You'll become a teacher, a mentor and a caregiver-someone children love, trust and learn from at every turn. You'll also learn about yourself, and discover new strengths and abilities you may never have known you possessed, such as patience and creativity.
You could start a home day care and look after just a few children at a time. Or you could start a day care centerand care for a larger group of children in an away-from-home setting. Either way, the rewards are great-financially and personally.
Two-thirds of all children under age six are regularly cared for by someone who is not their parent.
Professional childcare is needed in every community, from small towns to large cities. The need for daycare is expected to increase as even greater numbers of parents enter or rejoin the workforce. According to the National Association of Child Care Resource and Referral Agencies,65% of all mothers in America with children under five years old are in the workforce.
