This Is What A Scientist Looks Like

AAAS | If/Then Ambassador

If we want/need more girls to consider a career in STEM, and we do, they need to see positive role models who look like them in STEM careers. Girls also need to have their horizons broadened regarding what actually falls under the heading of STEM. Have you ever met a biomathematician, a digital archeologist, what about a translational scientist liaison? Probably not, and if you have not heard of these careers, do you think your middle school female students have? The IF/THEN Ambassadors Program is here to help you educate your female students, and your boys as well, about future possibilities.
