Here at Science Matters, we hesitate to confine black history to a month. In fact, we strive to bring stories of scientists of all racial and cultural groups to the forefront as we pursue learning in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) disciplines. However, we would like to take the opportunity this February to acknowledge and highlight achievements by black Americans, as society often did not value their genius.
You might know October as the month for fallen leaves, pumpkin carving and warm cider, but here at Science Matters we have a different tradition brewing. National Cyber Security Awareness Month, and that means it’s time for our favorite citizen scientists to hit the ’Net in pursuit of knowledge and safety. No prior experience required.
