Play episode · 54 min
Have you heard the heartbreaking percentage of Latinas representing only 2% in STEM fields?? Yeah, SMH! How does this work, when we use so many manufactured products for our monthly hygiene, make-up, and medicine? I found out from Carly Tompkins, STEM Molecular Biology and BioInformatics student at San Jose State, that "precision medicine" is becoming a thing! Not only that, but she is helping other Mijas with "Girls Who Code.org," a partnership with the Silicon Valley Hispanic Foundation, to provide visual learning to girls in elementary and middle school. She is making moves in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math to increase the awareness and importance of our Latina presence to be recognized in these fields. This is an awesome nerdy pod for those that want to learn more! No coding or science background required. Enjoy! Special mixing thanks to MixedbyCrates & 25th Street Recoding Studio, Oakland.
