I Am A Scientist

July 23, 2020

A project called "I Am A Scientist" is connecting middle and high school students with modern-day researchers with the goal of breaking down barriers like race, gender, and personal interests. Nabiha Saklayen, PhD '17, and Stephanie Fine Sasse, founder and director of educational design studio The Plenary, founded the project in response to the challenges they faced in their fields.

Twelve of the 22 scientists featured in the project are from the Department of Organismic and Evolutionary Biology: Scott Edwards, Cassandra Extavour and Pardis Sabeti.

Their porfiles were featured in the Harvard Gazette.
