Since I was already very interested in STEM, becoming a teen advocate wasn’t that hard. I was already passionate about the topic and especially the 3 points I chose to focus on in my persuasive essay. Such as...
The benefit of incorporating this curriculum in elementary school is because it allows the students to “tap into their natural and innate curiosity about the living world by simply allowing them to investigate and encouraging them to ask questions about the real world” (Sneideman). Another benefit would include how STEM is centered around knowledge level of the individual student and learning skills. It can be adapted to the point of which the student is understanding and encourages them to ask questions and be curious. By encouraging more women to become successful, those women could become mentors for others who aspire to achieve similar career interests. “Mentors also need to offer young women and even mid-career and senior women networks to help them advance at every stage of their career” (Hughes). They may become stuck after college with the question “so what is next” in mind. To move towards advancements, policies that might push out women should be reduced as much as possible. Create policies that allow a women to build a career, financially support her family, and still have a family, if she chooses, are ones that will increase the women in STEM by enabling them to be both women and STEM leaders (Hughes).
Basic and social needs
In Biology I learned about what basic and social needs we need as humans. Basic needs include food, water and shelter. Social needs include certainty, status, autonomy, relatedness and fairness. We applied these to neurobiology in class, specifically the teenage brain and the different connections that occur as well as the rate of our brain developing from the back to front. Connecting back to my social topic, a major one not being met is the status that women attain in the field because the majority of ceos are males. Along with that, fairness is not apparent in the field through the opportunities women receive and don’t receive.
