Recent alumna takes science to the streets
Dr. Danielle Lee, who recently received her PhD in biology from UM-St. Louis and COE Exchange contributor, is currently working to make science accessible to all, especially in those areas of St. Louis that are currently undeserved. Her passion and love of science and [wikipop]informal education[/wikipop] led St. Louis Magazine to name her one of the 45 people who might most change St. Louis. Dr. Lee currently is employed urban outreach coordinator for Science and Citizens Organized for Purpose and Exploration (SCOPE). As part of her work with SCOPE, she recently held the first ever science fair at the 2010 Missouri State Fair.
One of Dr. Lee’s most promising ideas is to have college students tutor undeserved communities in math and sciences in exchange for student loan forgiveness as well as having actual scientists provide after-school activities in these undeserved communities. For more information: click here.
