9:30 – 10:30 a.m. Concurrent Session
At the Kitty Andersen Youth Science Center (KAYSC), we preface our programming with transparency about the history of STEM in the United States and how it has been used to oppress many individuals. We redefine STEM to center indigenous and non-western ways of knowing and by recognizing that everyone has bias, even scientists.
