There's a Scientist in my Classroom! aims to form collaborations resulting in classroom visits where STEM professionals will “tell the story” of how they became inspired to pursue a STEM career, and what their research/work and life is like now. Teachers and STEM researchers and engineers [graduate students, post-docs, staff and faculty] will network and craft a visit that will be age-appropriate, fun, and include visuals and hands-on activities. This is a great opportunity to learn more about cutting-edge STEM research, K-12 education, best practices for speaking with young audiences, and for classroom teachers and those with STEM careers to make meaningful connections.
