A love of all things science and some timely inspiration...
So how did How Do You Science? really begin? And by the way... what is it?
How Do You Science? was brainstormed by the creative and passionate self-described "science nerds" at the Natural Resources Trust of Easton. Though the NRT staff members pretty much live and breathe science every day, they've found that most people don't think that much about science at all, and many people don't ever consider a career involving science or other STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) fields.
But while talking about how many people underestimate the role of science in everyone's lives, one offhanded question- "Well, how do you science?"- was asked, and an exciting outreach initiative was born.
The NRT's How Do You Science? outreach initiative is designed to expand people's understanding of how necessary and important science and all STEM fields are to every single person every day. Too many times people think that 'science' or 'math' is something that's only used in laboratories by scientists with lengthy titles after their names, but in reality STEM principles are used everywhere, and everyone should know how great that is! How Do You Science? shares fun examples of real world science and concrete cases of how academic study and careers in many different science fields have lead people to an exciting, meaningful, and enriching professional lives in STEM fields.
How Do You Science? will combine the power of personal stories and real world advice with the potential of social media to: educate people of all ages about how to pursue different career paths available throughout many branches of science, inspireyoung people to actively consider and participate in activities and careers relating to STEM fields, share the exciting ways that science is being used to make the world a better and more interesting place, and connectprofessionals, students, and science enthusiasts with diverse interests and experiences who share a common love of everything STEM!
