Stem-O-Sphere: Opportunity for Science Outreach on the World Wide Web
Internet access is a powerful resource at nearly everyone’s disposal and on the fingertips. This accessibility has been a luxury for my personal inquiry to learn science, but might not be as seen as useful to teens and adults in the context of STEM education. Additionally, the implications for learning STEM in classrooms is observed to be difficult and needs reinforcement outside. With the generation of Stem-o-sphere as a student-run publication website, the opportunity to scientifically engage with the lay increased on a platform with billions of users. My project aims to continue this website through social media and create insightful and entertaining content that reinforces learning. With the help of Latham peers interested in contributing to content and management, I hope to bolster Stem-o-sphere visits and continue activity on an already established Latham project.
