FSF SCHOLARS MEET WITH WOMEN OF COLOR EXCELLING IN STEM CAREERS
During the first week of November, FSF welcomed esteemed physicist Dr. Simone Hyater-Adams to chat with our girls about her experiences in STEM and the importance of representation in the field. Students were able to learn about her educational journey, her love of the arts, and how she continues to find innovative ways to blend her passions together in the hope of bringing more girls of color into the sciences. Thank you, Dr. Simone, for serving as a role model for our future scientists!
When girls of color are introduced to influential leaders of color in STEM, they begin to positively associate and identify with the idea that they, too, can find success in STEM.
