Preschool through high school experiences have a direct impact on the majors and disciplines that students want to study and engage with in college. Designing these experiences to invite underrepresented groups into the discipline early can help to inspire and motivate a new generation of professionals. In this episode, Dr. Stacy Klein-Gardner joins us to discuss how engineers are attempting to diversify the field.

Dr. Klein-Gardner is the founding director of the Center for STEM Education for Girls, and is currently an Adjunct Associate Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Vanderbilt University, and a Senior Professional Development Provider with Engineering is Elementary at the Museum of Science in Boston. She recently was appointed as a Fellow of the American Society for Engineering Education.
