Go ahead, ask a chemistry grad!
Princeton's Chem-STEM tells K-12 students what doing chemistry is like...
Chem-Stem is a live, online program run by graduate students in the department of chemistry at Princeton University. The goal of Chem-Stem is to inform middle-school and high-school students about graduate school / a career in science and ultimately inspire students at a young age to pursue careers in STEM. Given the current digital learning setting, we thought this would be an excellent time to help motivate students to be excited about science!
begins with a 10 minute introductory presentation on the path to graduate school, what we do as graduate students, and what a career in science entails. Additionally, we will talk about how chemistry impacts students' lives (chemistry is all around us and saves lives!). This presentation will be followed by a guided 10-20 minute Q&A session where the students can ask two to three chemistry graduate students questions and/or the graduate students can ask each other questions (What is your favorite part about graduate school / Are chemicals dangerous?).
