Exploring Dr. Raven’s Journey in STEM: The Science Maven’s Path to Success | Nebraska Today

On April 3, at 3:30 p.m., the Nebraska Union Swanson Auditorium will host a unique event featuring Dr. Raven Baxter, also known as Dr. Raven the Science Maven to her over 200,000 followers. Baxter is a trained molecular biologist and science educator who has made it her mission to democratize science, nurture curiosity and bridge the gap between complex scientific concepts and the general public.

Her viral hip-hop science videos have led her to start the Black in SciComm and Black in STEM Education movements. Today, she leads the Science Haven, a nonprofit organization dedicated to making science engaging for everyone, regardless of their scientific knowledge or background.

The event is free and open to the public, with Jocelyn Bosley, research impact coordinator in the Office of Research and Economic Development joining Baxter for a relaxed conversation about her STEM journey, challenges and opportunities in creating a more diverse and inclusive STEM community and creative strategies for making science appealing and relevant to a broader audience.

This event is sponsored by Nebraska EPSCoR with additional support from the School of Biological Sciences, Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Department of Physics and Astronomy, Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences, and the Center for Science Math Computer Education.
