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

On April 3 at 3:30 p.m., Dr. Raven Baxter, also known as the Science Maven to her 200,000-plus followers, will be speaking at the Nebraska Union Swanson Auditorium. Baxter is a trained molecular biologist and science educator with a mission to democratize science and bridge the gap between complex scientific concepts and the general public. She started the Black in SciComm and Black in STEM Education movements, leading her to create the Science Haven, a nonprofit organization dedicated to making science engaging for everyone.

The event is free and open to the public, and Baxter will be joined by Jocelyn Bosley, research impact coordinator in the Office of Research and Economic Development for a relaxed conversation about her STEM journey, the challenges and opportunities in creating a more diverse and inclusive STEM community, and creative strategies for making science appealing and relevant to a broader audience. This event is sponsored by Nebraska EPSCoR with additional support from various departments such as School of Biological Sciences, Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Department of Physics and Astronomy, Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences, Center for Science Math Computer Education.
