Exploring Dr. Raven’s Journey in STEM: The Science Maven’s Path to Success | Nebraska Today

Dr. Raven Baxter, also known as the Science Maven to her 200,000-plus followers, is set to speak at the Nebraska Union Swanson Auditorium on April 3 at 3:30 p.m. The event is open to the public and free of charge.

Baxter is a trained molecular biologist and science educator who has a passion for making science accessible to everyone, regardless of their background or scientific knowledge. Her viral hip-hop science videos helped her launch the Black in SciComm and Black in STEM Education movements, and she now leads Science Haven, a nonprofit organization dedicated to making science engaging for all.

During her talk, Baxter will be joined by Jocelyn Bosley, research impact coordinator in the Office of Research and Economic Development. They will have an open conversation about their STEM journeys and the challenges and opportunities that come with creating a more diverse and inclusive STEM community. Additionally, they will discuss creative strategies for making science appealing and relevant to a broader audience.

This event is sponsored by Nebraska EPSCoR with additional support from several departments at UNL including School of Biological Sciences, Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Department of Physics and Astronomy, Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences, and Center for Science Math Computer Education.
