Gecko’s Can Grow New Brains!?
Leopard geckoes can regrow their tails and their brains now!
The 3rd March marks World Book Day 2022, so we are here to celebrate with some book-themed articles for you. The theme of this year’s world book day is ‘you are a reader’ and if you are here on the Stemettes Zine, then hopefully you love reading!
In this issue, you will meet Susanne Tedrick and Hope Jahren who are both published authors as well as women in STEM with STEMazing careers. And you will hear from Lauryn, a Stemette Society member, who has recently published her own book about the lessons she learnt from writing a book about black women in STEM.
Have you ever felt like you have too much on your plate- that your workload is getting bigger whilst your time is getting shorter? Have you ever felt like you are making loads of little mistakes you wouldn’t normally make? You might have suffered from burnout.
“For my book, The Shuri Effect: Bridging the Gap for Young Black Women in STEM, I read loads of research, interviewed many generous Black women and reflected on my own STEM journey. All that (and many edits later), we have a book. These are 5 facts I learned while writing it.”
Simply answer a few questions and we’ll generate a tailored set of articles and content that you can browse and read at your own leisure
Discuss things you’ve seen in the Zine, experienced at school or have learnt from STEM events like the ones run by the Stemettes. A global network to help you learn and get into the STEM industry – chat with your peers and get advice direct from TeamStemette.
