Picture a Scientist – Free Documentary (need to request link) – submitted by Laura Wodlinger

Picture a Scientist

– What does a Scientist look like?   How can we get more diversity into STEM?

This amazing documentary shows bias in Science through personal stories and through data.   Three incredible women talk about their own STEM journey.

A great way to incorporate more Strand A into your science class, and a great way to get students talking about bias and discrimination in STEM.   When I watched “Picture a Scientist” I was shocked and couldn’t stop talking about it.
