What does research at UIowa look like?
My project, “A Day in the Life of a Scientist,” aims to educate students considering a STEM career on the various aspects of working as a scientist. Specifically, the goal is to expose students that may be underrepresented in STEM or students that have not been educated on what a career as a scientist involves. The project is a video that focuses on various labs around the University of Iowa and the work being done in those labs. The video consists of short interviews and conversations with scientists in a couple of different fields. Hopefully, after watching the video, students will have a much clearer idea of what a career in STEM can mean for them.
