Where Science and Social Justice Meet
As communities across the country grapple with the legacy of institutional racism, many educators are evaluating the role they can play in addressing systemic racism. One way to begin doing this is by making a conscious effort to become educated about the history that has shaped this country — including the history of science — and acknowledging the ways in which racial inequities continue to exist and shape society. NOVA is committed to providing educators with resources to address the racial inequities that impact students. This fall, NOVA Education has organized a three-part speaker series dedicated to discussing the intersection of STEM education and social justice.
