About this Event
The National Museum of African American History and Culture invites middle and high school students to join us as we explore careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Through the Window and into the Mirror is a video conversation series about the experiences of African American STEM professionals today. Students will to peer into the ‘windows’ of the speakers’ lives, learn from their lived experiences as STEM professionals and will find parts of their culture and lifestyle ‘mirrored’ in the speakers’ lessons of their youth, their greatest challenges and accomplishments. Through the Window and into the Mirror aims to inform, inspire, and be a starting point for students as they take steps towards having careers in STEM. 

Join us weekly as we enter the minds of STEM professionals with careers in science education, chemistry, science communication, science policy, biomedical research, engineering and computer science.

All times are Eastern Daylight Time
