My Culture and STEM: Coffee and Conversation with Elders and Board

Representatives from the AISES Council of Elders and the Board of Directors


Too often STEM students and professionals are asked [unfairly] to “check their culture at the door” despite evidence that shows that the inclusion of alternative knowledege systems creates better science.  Members of the AISES Board and Council of Elders will engage participants in a structured “world café style” conversation to explore how they can include their cultural knowledge in their STEM education and their careers.  A larger group debrief and discussion will follow the conversations.
