Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) environments are far less diverse than the population at large and are thereby missing considerable talent to solve critically important problems in improving the human experience (health, environment, etc.). BIO 161 is a seminar course in which students investigate the scholarship examining disparities regarding who participates in STEM as well as the communities that these scientists do and do not serve. Students will bring their diverse experiences, interests, and expertise to collaborate on charting sustainable paths toward more inclusivity in STEM at Davidson and beyond.

Satisfies Justice, Equality, and Community requirement.

Spring 2022

For spring 2022 Being Human in STEM, a seminar course, will occur entirely online using Zoom and Moodle. We will meet synchronously most days during our TuTh class time. Our time together will prioritize small group work, discussing papers, student-led discussions, sharing project elements, etc. When students cannot attend a live session they may watch recorded class sessions and participate asynchronously.
