Career Connection: A Career in Forensic Science: Demystifying Myths

Career Connection: A Career in Forensic Science: Demystifying Myths

Crime dramas on television, and especially the CSI franchise, have helped promote public interest in forensic science, but they have created unrealistic expectations about the capabilities of forensic disciplines and the roles of forensic scientists. This presentation provides a more realistic view of careers in forensic science, with an emphasis on the education and training requirements to help students achieve their goals.

STEM Lesson: The Latest Projections for Climate Change from the Recent IPCC AR6 Report

STEM Lesson: The Latest Projections for Climate Change from the Recent IPCC AR6 Report

The long-awaited Sixth Assessment Report (AR6) from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) was just released this past August. The report integrates the most recent research on climate from over 14,000 studies and makes recommendations on humanity’s courses of action. Some of the results are expected — the Earth’s surface temperature is continuing to rise — but some unusual trends and projections are also emerging. Michael Wysession, a professor of geophysics at Washington University in St. Louis, will summarize and explain the latest results, implications, and paths forward for humanity.
