S.T.E.A.M. Powered: Profiles in Science, Creativity and Exploration

Category: Science Tool

Back To Science Tools

This multi-part series features five women who are at the tops of their fields in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math. Over the 2015-16 school year, one week will be dedicated to each person, highlighting their education, careers and innovative contributions to their various disciplines — including the discovery of new species, the exploration of hostile ecosystems and the conservation of marine species.

During each participant’s week, schools are encouraged to submit students’ questions and comments via the Oceanscape Network. Each participant will answer student inquiries directly.

Additional details will be posted on this page, or you can click here to subscribe to our free email newsletter for updates on this and other great Oceanscape programs.
