On June 18, 1983, Sally Ride broke barriers and became the first American woman to reach space. Her journey aboard the Challenger shuttle is a testament to courage and determination.

Sally Ride's passion for science and her drive to excel led her to NASA. She became a symbol of possibility for girls everywhere, showing that the sky is not the limit.

As a mission specialist on STS-7, Sally Ride helped deploy satellites and conduct experiments. Her contributions to space exploration paved the way for future astronauts.

Sally Ride's legacy lives on through her advocacy for STEM education. Her story encourages all children to dream big and work hard.

Celebrating Her Legacy

Honor Sally Ride Day, May 26th, with space-themed projects, like building a model shuttle or interviewing women in STEM. Encourage kids to learn more and to see themselves as the next generation of explorers.

Sally Ride once said, "Young girls need to see role models in whatever careers they may choose, just so they can picture themselves doing those jobs someday." 

Let's celebrate her pioneering spirit and continue to inspire young minds to reach for the stars.
