Escúchame, Mi Ciencia Cuenta: Leveraging Cultural Ways of Knowing to Increase Chicana Stem Engagement

August 7, 2024, Wednesday, 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm Central Time. Registration

Sponsored by: LARIG Research Interest Group

Join Dr. Patricia Ramirez-Biondolillo for a provocative session that discusses how we may counter the standardized hegemonic science curriculum that excludes Chicanx cultural representation by utilizing the underpinnings of social justice.

In this session, we will examine how testimonios of Chicana preservice teachers can be leveraged to articulate culturally sustainable practices relevant to these teachers in the Rio Grande Valley and beyond.
