Students will have a chance to engage with me and one another as we journey through history and meet women as science was developed within western society. We will have group discussions, time for questions, and time to talk about our own perspectives on women in STEM.
Natasha has taught learners from 3-18 through many topics in science, and has a broad knowledge base. As a woman in STEM, she has had the ability to learn about the women who came before her and advocate for the needs of the women in STEM today. She wishes to help support and encourage more women and girls' interest in the STEM fields.
Learners may wish to do their own research on women in STEM to bring to the discussions.
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
There will be conversations around historical events that involve deaths and accidents, as well as discussion sexism, ableism, and other topics leading to the exclusion of women in science. We will cover events in history that deal with war, famine, and other events of this nature.
