I had the pleasure of moderating a panel at the S.H.E. Summit: The Global Women's Leadership & Lifestyle Event last week where we had a riveting discussion on how we can take STEM to the next level and integrate girls more seamlessly into the field of science. The panelists included Rita J. King, Executive Vice President for business development at Science House, Tracy Day, CEO of World Science Festival, and Rachel Rothman, technical and engineering director for Good Housekeeping Institute. We discussed a range of topics that focused on how to make science more tangible, thereby enticing more people, namely girls, to pursue it as a career path. Moreover, we talked about breaking down the barriers between scientists and the layperson to have a greater appreciation of how scientific discovery permeates all aspects of our everyday lives and will continue to be increasingly central to the rapid pace of modern day innovation.
