Reaching out to the Next Generation
How to interest children in science, and keep them interested, is a commonly discussed topic. Over the past decade I have been fortunate enough to participate in many different outreach programs specifically designed to do just that. Recently, I represented the Association for Women in Science (AWIS) at a middle school in the LA area. There were a few goals we wished to achieve:
1. To discuss what jobs are available for those with an interest in science.
2. To explain our career paths and what research we perform.
