Stemosphere was born from The Latham Science Engagement Initiative, where students create, plan, and implement self-directed STEM outreach projects. While these students come from a variety of backgrounds, majors, and interests, they share a common goal to engage the public in discussions of science and opportunities in STEM. The impact of this approach proved tremendous, and this website is one of many similarly impressive student works.
All too often, science articles are either incredibly condescending and full of jargon or oversimplified and the integrity of the research is lost. In this blog, we hope to spark your interest in new research and scientific discoveries and communicate scientific topics in an easy-to-digest way. Stemosphere is completely student directed and edited, with each piece written by fellows in the LSEI.
In addition to written pieces, Stemosphere also hosts vlogs that follow the journeys of other fellows in the The Latham Science Engagement Initiative as they implement their STEM outreach projects. In the Projects tab, we will feature descriptions of all the projects and where to find their work.
