It’s that time of year American Girl fans, we get a look at the new GOTY! Without further ado, let me introduce the 2018 American Girl of the Year Luciana Vega!
Luciana is an 11-year old who dreams of being the first person on Mars. Bringing this story to life is an all-star advisory board that includes: Dr. Ellen Stofan, former NASA Chief Scientist, Dr. Deborah Barnhart, CEO and Executive Director of the U.S. Space & Rocket Center, Maureen O’Brien, Manager of Strategic alliances at NASA, and Dr. Megan McArthur Behnken, NASA Astronaut.
Everything for Luciana seems out-of-this-world awesome! Her story, products, and the STEM-based educational program made partnership with Scholastic and Space Camp, are going to kids excited to explore the galaxy around us.
Aside from the way cool space-inspired products like this Mars habitat and flight suit, Luciana has a powerful story to tell.
She shows what it means to be a girl with a strong character, and how creative thinking, collaboration, and STEM literacy provide amazing opportunities for growth and development.
