What if we utilized the power of storytelling to inspire, empower, and tell the stories of the people (and students) engaged in STEM?
Students might tell their own stories through text or movies. Local scientists/techies/mathematicians/engineers could tell their story. While this could be in person (like Michael Szczepanik's Breakfast with a Biologist), it could also be a virtual share as well (like Chris Goode suggested) so that we can all benefit from these stories.
This would potentially increase the role model base and help broaden the definition of what it means to be a scientist, mathematician, engineer, and someone involved with technology. Videos could be made and shared (and watched).
