Graduate research assistant University of Kentucky Lexington, Kentucky
This presentation will be a panel of high school teachers, graduate students and AAPS Women Leadership community. The attendees in this session will listen to experiences from high school science teachers , scientists in universities , industry and academia. The different avenues available to the young students in form of mentorship , hands on science workshops, science fairs and competitions will be shared. Some case studies of successful mentorships will also be highlighted
This session will interest all AAPS scientists who have an interest in building the next generation of young scientists especially focusing on women scientists
The program will include a panel of diverse scientists who will share their experiences mentoring students ranging from elementary schools to high school special research projects as well as undergraduates and postdoctoral fellows. With this interactive approach, we intend to build a community within AAPS that can expand outreach to young students and make them aware of cutting edge and state of art science advancements. This will enable us to bring forth the next generation of young scientists with the ability to troubleshoot and solve current challenges.
Learn how to engage young students and get them motivated in STEM related activities
Nurture the scientific mindset for female students by providing mentorship
