Taylor M. Yow set her career path in high school. More than anything, she wanted to become an engineer, working on spacecraft and orbital calculations. She didn’t realize just how quickly she would become a part of science history after arriving at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University.
When the much-awaited lunar landing happens, technology that Yow helped develop as part of Embry-Riddle’s EagleCam team will be one of the first American satellites to touch the surface of the moon since 1972.
To other women who dream of STEM careers, Yow emphasized: “You can do it.”
