Can we leverage the power of Story (from The Story Collider) to impact how students view who does science? The short answer is, yes. Prof Sehoya Cotner (BTL), recently co-presented these findings with Azariah Yonas (3rd year student in College of Liberal Arts) at the national symposium.
The presentation team shared numerous initiatives beyond the college as well. Jessica Cameron (from the Office of Equity and Diversity) discussed the North Star STEM Alliance program. In addition, Michael Winikoff from the BioTechnology Institute shared ongoing science communication and outreach programs, including Market Science, InSciEdOut and the SciComm Lab.
