STEM education is curriculum, pedagogy, and academic policy that focuses on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Currently, Black and Latinx STEM degree holders and workers are greatly underrepresented in the workforce. The supply of Black scientists, engineers, and mathematicians has been flat or falling for decades. Furthermore, Black STEM workers and degree seekers have abandoned the field at a much higher rate than White workers and degree seekers. The STEM workforce desperately needs Black participants as Black people only make up 9% of its current workers. In this episode of the Black on Black education podcast, we met with Kimberly Lane Clark, a Google for Education Program Manager discussed with us the importance of exposing more Black and Brown students to STEM education to discuss the current lack of Black students in STEM and various issues within the educational system. We discussed so much, including the barriers existing, especially among students of color, that discourage STEM learning, ways to excite our children to pursue these fields, the type of opportunities they bring, the need for individualized learning in different educational spaces, advocating for our students and so much more. This was a truly interesting episode you don't want to miss!
