According to NASA, Tiffany Hunter is a member of NASA's Langley Aerospace Research Summer Scholars Program. Through LARSS, Hunter has interested other students in Science, Technology Engineering and Mathematics since 2010.
NASA says that shortly after Hunter arrived to help out with LARSS, she helped start the Summer of Innovation at the Virginia Air and Space Center. At LARSS, she also met her mentor Dollie McCown. Hunter said on NASA's official website that she was inspired to be part of LARSS because children have always had a special place in her heart. By the children taking part in LARSS, she is able to provide them with the best opportunities to succeed in life. Hunter also works with the year-round program called the Interdisciplinary National Science Project Incorporating Research and Education Experience. This program is designed for students who are interested in STEM careers.
According to NASA, the Summer of Innovation is a program that is designed to help encourage learning in STEM in support of President Obama's Educate to Innovate program. NASA hopes that through the Summer of Innovation program, it increases the number of students who grow up to be mathematicians, engineers and scientists. This program places a big emphasis on trying to broaden the participation of underrepresented students.
