Seventeen Minutes of Science: One Teacher’s Mission to Increase Diversity in STEM Through His Classroom

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!

For Episode 24 of 17 Minutes of Science we are joined by Dr. Zachary Pratt. Recently Zach, a high school biology teacher, reached out on Twitter to his fellow scientists about a grassroots effort he’s initiating to help provide relatable mentors to his students and to encourage and increase diversity in STEM. Hoping to gather a few responses, Dr. Pratt was blown away by the more than 360 responses he’s received so far.

Tune in to listen to our discussion with Dr. Pratt about the inspiration for this project, how it is different than other similar programs, how it is going, and more.
