Calling All STEM Professionals: Inspire K-12 Science Students!

Do you work in science, technology, engineering, or mathematics? Interested in sharing your experiences with K-12 science students? Volunteer to be interviewed for our 5 Questions for a Scientist series!

So far we've spoken with ecologists, neuroscientists, materials scientists, and science communicators at all stages of their careers. They've shared their paths to where they are now, their favorite parts of their careers, and advice for budding scientists. We aim to inspire K-12 students to pursue careers in the sciences by bridging the gap between the science classroom and science's real-world applications.

The five questions we'll ask you are:

  1. Explain what you do in your work in one sentence (or two!). 
  2. When did you first become interested in your field?
  3. What is your favorite part of being a scientist or of science in general?
  4. What is a typical day like for you as a scientist?
  5. Do you have any advice for young people interested in science today?
If you'd like to be featured on Science NetLinks in your own 5 Questions for a Scientist profile, please contact Maya Inamura at minamura@aaas.org. We look forward to hearing from you!
