We help high schoolers communicate complex topics and learn about careers bridging STEM and society.
Translate tough but important STEM topics to non-experts
From pollution to cybersecurity, all of today's pressing issues all involve STEM, but matter to people beyond those fields. Understanding STEM is crucial, but not everyone needs (or wants) to be a scientist. That's where STEM communication—making complex topics engaging and accessible for diverse audiences—comes in.
Science & Us Makeathon
August 17, 2019 @ MIT
We bring together 50 high schoolers for a day of creating projects—articles, podcasts, art—to describe a STEM topic of your choice to general audiences.
We'll provide food, hands-on workshops, and opportunities to meet and learn from the coolest people in STEM communication.
Whether you're passionate biology or filmmaking, math or creative writing, the Makeathon is for you. Just bring your curiosity and dedication!
