When you tune into the Beyond the (Micro)Scope podcast you get to hear stories of women in STEM doing exciting things. Women in STEM are creating businesses, opportunities, developing products, and represent positive role models for women in STEM. This is what other women in STEM need to see. I enjoy listening to their stories and learning about what other women in STEM are doing. With a STEM degree, you can explore many pathways in science.
If you want to listen to a quick episode while enjoying your morning tea check out the (Micro)Bio episodes. The (Micro)bios are short podcast episodes spotlighting different women in science. If you are a woman in STEM and want to submit your (Micro)Bio you can submit your (Micro)Bio here.
What gets me excited about STEM:
All things STEM: supporting the next generation of scientists, mentoring, sharing my STEM experiences, communicating science, or working with programs that support increasing STEM diversity. This is one of the reasons I started Mademoiselle Scientist.
