2019 STEM NEWS Vol 8 Issue 3

Much has been written about the need for greater diversity in the biomedical and bioengineering workforce. To meet this challenge innovative outreach methods and enhancement of early training models along with transparent outcome evaluation of practices are necessary. This issue features minority participation in 3D Modeling and Biomechanics, mentoring for diversity, and bioscience research on genetic disease.

The rich history of minority architects in the United States, and the legacy of racism in architecture, dates back to the colonial era. We are impressed with the few architects of color and their capacity to translate visions into reality. So it is important to let aspiring minority youngsters know that there are so many aspects to the practice of architecture; it is not just designing a building. How a facility design fits into a community’s sense of place can best be understood by persons who value the culture.

2019 STEM NEWS Vol 8 Issue 1

This issue offers perspectives from energy professionals on emerging and existing technologies and how their work relates to a sustained engineering and science workforce pipeline. We discuss mass transit electrification in Chile and China with articles on Clean Energy and storage. We also identify gaps in the energy workforce pipeline, and provide insights to achieve diversity and inclusion as new technology is incorporated.

2018 STEM NEWS Vol 7 Issue 4

Polymer chemistry is a chemistry sub-discipline that deals with the structures, chemical synthesis and properties of polymers, primarily synthetic polymers such as plastics and elastomers. Polymer chemistry is part of the broader field of polymer science. We highlight in this issue discussion about polymer science with an emphasis on new development in materials, importance of minority and women participation, and how polymer science impacts quality of life.

2018 STEM NEWS Vol 7 Issue 3

The problems that plague science and math teaching of our children in rural schools and the Black and Brown students trapped in under-resourced urban schools with poorly trained and overworked teachers has become as chronic, as the opioid crisis. This issue gives contributors as advocates for minorities in technologies, a platform to present perspectives on solutions for science and engineering advancement, on the question of “what works" and how technical organizations may collaborate.

2018 STEM NEWS Vol 7 Issue 2

We feature work on nanotube science and discuss the role of immigrants in science and raise a question. Can the 85,000 H1B Visa applicants admitted annually be gradually reduced by 10% by increasing the number of minority scientists and engineers graduated from US colleges and universities? We can address national security and meet the workforce demands for engineers and scientists by doubling the numbers of black and brown students who move through the gauntlets of our education system and into employment as scientists and engineers.

2018 STEM NEWS Vol 7 Issue 1

The Editorial Review Committee has set the forward plan for this publication. In upcoming issues we will solicit information from our readers and provide perspectives on issues of concern to STEM education. We remain keenly interested in hearing from readers on these associated science and engineering issues: Energy Development, Artificial Intelligence/Robotics, Innovation in Education, Global Defense Leadership, Economy and Jobs.
