Karen Taylor-Brown drops by to share how Refraction Media's Careers with STEM and Careers with Code publications are helping students learn about what really is available to them once they leave high school. We also discuss ways that your students can get involved in submitting articles to science publishers and how to grab the attention of the editors. "Policymakers and corporate leaders were starting to say, hang on, if we’re looking ahead at where we want our nation to be and where we want our businesses to be we really need to get more kids engaged in STEM because those are the skills we’re going to need for a future economy. Coming from a content background, Heather and I just thought we could do something about that”. We also look at how your students can start to learn publishing skills by writing regular blog articles and we revisit a grab from a past episode in which Steve Sherman from Living maths shares his passion for getting students excited about the world around them.
