Executive Director Mayrose Salvador featured on Be the Next Her

I am the first one in my family to go to grad school and come from a small town where many people still don’t understand what a chemist does, much less what is done in PhD research. During visits back to my town, I realized that very little had changed in how children are taught science since I myself was in grade school — it was too theoretical, which made it too abstract and unapproachable.
