Educate ourselves by using the resources in libraries and online to find new ways to understand our world. Also, encouraging kids to see the hidden STEM opportunities all around them. When we cook or bake, it's math and chemistry. When we observe weather patterns or even changes in our body, these are all wonders of the STEM awareness kids naturally have!
Bucking the Stereotypes
Remember her dissertation? In case you scientists, or budding scientists, are wondering what Hypothalamic regula- ion in relation to maladaptive, obses- sive-compulsive,iliativeandsatiety behaviors in Prader-Willi syndrome means, here's a breakdown: Prader-Willi syndrome is a neurogenetic disorder that causes obesity.

Which provokes, for Bialik fans, a pressing question: What's her next chapter?
