Myong Shows Kids How to get Quantitative With Biology and Have Fun While Doing It!
The goals of Myong’s outreach are to make science and engineering fun, approachable, and relevant to kids. Many of the students in this after school program come from groups that are under-represented in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) and Myong hopes to boost their confidence and help them see that a STEM career is not only within their reach, but would also be exciting and fun!
