After a rigorous interview and selection process, Marie Hill, the Music and STEAM Specialist at Douglas L. Jamerson, Jr. Elementary, was selected to serve as a liaison between NASA and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory and her K-5 community. As an ambassador, Hill will develop and host public events to communicate the science of NASA’s space exploration missions as well as the integration of arts into the STEM curriculum.
