Wordless Wednesday: The New Face of STEM


They ask me what I do and who I do it for.

Them. These were some of the students I had the pleasure of sharing science with when I was an NSF GK12 Fellow at Normandy Senior High School.

Students in the classroom doing hands on science lessons studying microbes under a microscope.

Students outdoors checking nest boxes.

Students at a nature center doing hands on urban ecology observations.

In those moments, they really were scientists. And it's for students just like these (and many more) that I do outreach.

Join me in raising money for DonorsChoose to help more students find their way to STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math).
