This is an exciting opportunity for middle and high school youth from all backgrounds to hear inspirational women and minority STEM professionals speak about their careers and share their personal stories. You’ll have a chance to ask questions and learn more about each professional’s pathway to science. In addition, participants from the Museum’s spring Girls in Science program will be attending and sharing posters about women in science they’ve met this school year.

Diversify STEM: Youth Connections aims to break down stereotypes about what it means to be a scientist or work in STEM fields, and introduce teens to diverse role models in these fields, challenging the typical idea of what a scientist looks like.
