Tune in weekly to our virtual series "Seventeen Minutes of Science" every Tuesday at 11am PST / 2pm ET where we go live on Facebook with a new guest each week to talk about how science and biotechnology is woven into their lives for (you guessed it) 17 minutes!
On episode 41 of 17 minutes of Science we are joined by Dr. Theanne Griffith to discuss how she is mixing her passion for science with her passion for storytelling to create the STEM-themed chapter book series, The Magnificent Makers.
Dr. Griffith received her BA in neuroscience and Spanish from Smith College, and earned her doctorate in neuroscience from Northwestern University. She is currently an Assistant Professor at the University of California Davis.
Dr. Griffith has always loved science and storytelling, and her books blend these two passions by taking young readers on out of this world, science-focused adventures. The first three books in her series, How to Test a Friendship, Brain Trouble, and Riding Sound Waves are currently available, the fourth book in The Magnificent Makers series, The Great Germ Hunt, will be released later in 2021.
Tune into this episode as we discuss Dr. Griffith's books, and the importance of representation in science.
