  • ‘STEM for ALL’ – Dr. Maggie Aderin Pocock – WISE 2013 Focus
  • Dr. Maggie Aderin-Pocock started her journey in Science Communication from the standpoint of wanting to encourage more youth (especially girls) to consider jobs in STEM.
  • Over the years her emphasis on youth has changed to include a much more general audience for three reasons. First, the older generation still has great influence over young people and, if you captivate the parents, the children will often follow. Second, STEM is very much part of our lives. To use it to its true potential, it is vital to understand its scope and limitations. Lastly, STEM practitioners need to be guided ethically and responsibly by the public, but to do this effectively society needs to be STEM literate.
