This Month's STEM Advice Corner: Plant Biology

Our mission is to re-invigorate the interest of our nation's youth in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) by producing and presenting the most compelling, exciting, educational and entertaining science festival in the United States. In addition to the celebration, throughout the year we work to sustain the Science Festival's impact through year-round programming and curriculum development and a content-rich, interactive website. We strive to establish ourselves as a resource for everyone in the STEM community and especially our future STEM leaders.

One of the ways that we hope to achieve this is through our website feature: STEM Advice Corner. The STEM Advice Corner highlights careers in science and engineering. We host a new career each month and offer an in depth analysis on what it takes to pursue the given career path including the skills required to succeed; the details of the work performed and related careers in the field. This is a great resource for students pursuing careers in STEM!

This month our focus is on How to Grow a Career in Plant Biology! Students will see that it is fun to discover the active, useful, beautiful, eco-friendly, and even bizarre things plants can do! They will learn the skills required to excel in plant biology including curiosity, success in science and math and the motivation to pursue college and beyond.

Please visit the STEM Advice Corner to read more about this month's career focus: How to Grow a Career in Plant Biology!
