In lieu of writing my own post today, I wanted to share some resources on breaking down systemic barriers in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math).
This is #BlackBotanistsWeek on twitter. This is a great opportunity to find out about cool people studying plants.
I love how this resources page for #shutdownstem breaks it down so that you can start at an appropriate level for where you are.
I also recommend This Podcast Will Kill You which often discusses some of the horrendous crimes that have been committed in the name of science for example on topics like lead poisoning and syphillis.
While this podcast isn’t specifically about STEM, it is a good one to learn about the history of racism in Canada. They also profile different inventors from time to time. Secret Life of Canada
I also just discovered the cross USA ride of Scott Edwards, a Harvard Ornithology professor.
There are many more resources out there. And I will try to update this page every so often. But in the meantime, go check out someone else!
