Mary J Blige's got a REAL LOVE for Math!

She's a nine-time Grammy award winning artist, an actress and all-around super star but Mary J. Blige is taking on a new cause–Educating young girls and getting them interested in science, engineering and math!

The R&B star has paired up with NASA and is showing young girls that not even the sky is the limits. She hopes to encourage young women to pursue exciting experiences and career choices through studying science, technology, engineering and mathematics. NASA's Summer of Innovation project and Blige's Foundation for the Advancement of Women Now have a lot in common. Both show students the many possibilities available if they follow their dreams and reach for the stars

What is the Summer of Innovation?   NASA's Summer of Innovation project is a multi-faceted, intensive middle school science, technology, engineering and mathematics, or STEM, project with a pilot conducted during the summer 2010. Summer of Innovation is designed to improve STEM teaching and learning in partnership with federal agencies, academic and informal organizations, nonprofits, and industry.
