New NASA program offers mentorship for girls

The out-of-this-world program connects school-aged girls with NASA scientists for one-on-one learning
Does your little girl dream of one day reaching the stars? If so, this new NASA program is definitely for her. It's called G.I.R.L.S. (Giving Initiative and Relevance to Learning Science), a five-week summer mentorship program aimed at school aged girls with an interest in science, technology, engineering, and math.
According to NASA, the program is all about empowering the next generation of innovators. The program will last five weeks, starting July 9, 2012. The new pilot program will be available to 15—20 girls in the United States in grades 5 through 8. No travel is required — participants will connect with their NASA mentors via video chat online. All mentors will be assigned just one girl, keeping the program small and intimate.
If you think this program may be right for you, your kids, or someone you know, applications are due June 15, 2012. The application period is not yet open, though, so you'll have to keep an eye on the NASA website for more details.

I plan to live forever, of course, but barring that I'd settle for a couple thousand years. Even five hundred would be pretty nice.
