Are you seeking any opportunities?: Research, Graduate School, Post Baccalaureate Programs, Symposiums, etc. (anything science/biology), also want to connect to organizations that could potentially help me / partner with me for a project I have in mind: a group that focuses on bringing STEM to marginalized communities from a young age through advocating for science literacy at a young age via events, lectures, and class/school visits (really wanna develop this in the next year!!!!)
