Educating Future Scientists
One of the best ways to inspire future generations of scientists is for them to have role models. Those role models can come in the form of mentors and working scientists, but they can also come in the form of great science teachers. This month we're focusing on the teachers who have helped light the flame of curiosity in millions of students around the globe. And some of those science teachers even started out as scientists!

Post 3 - Mythbusters
Science is hard. It's only for people who look like Einstein. These are just a couple of the science myths many people pick up early in life. This @NYASciences podcast discusses how teachers can help stop these myths from spreading. #FutureofSTEM https://bit.nyas.org/2UWGgTa
