"It's Academic" Blog: Closing the Gap, One Girl at a Time

"We've all heard about the gender gap in STEM. It can leave a STEM teacher feeling quite hopeless about her ability to impact the world! But then I think back on my own experience. . . and I remember that for some, teachers can make all the difference." In our latest "It's Academic" faculty blog, Director of STEM Education Kristine Varney reflects on her journey to finding physics and how she can pay forward her love of science.
