Some months ago the publisher of STEM News Chronicle, Mr. Lawrence King, contacted me with the following question, “Many academically talented girls often leave STEM majors or shy away from careers in STEM here and in Europe. Do you have any insights?”
For a few days I let my mind run over this sad but very true fact. And, after having several conversations with different people concerning this matter, my personal thoughts went out to: we seem to life in a democratic system what is containing from a unified language.
A language that is being imprinted in young creative minds somewhere around the period of them attending a university. And with this I mean, young people who are extremely enthusiastic about a particular topic and wanting to find out whether A) their first idea/theory regarding their question asked might be correct and B) what else can be researched in this matter, run into a huge and massive wall as soon as they present their amazing theories, spawn from creative thinking, to their peers and/or professors.
Sure, it is good to know and understand what was once written by well-known scientists both historical and modern names. But, frankly, I am of the opinion that in the moment we keep these brilliant minds from being creative and playing with known scientific facts, is killing an open mind as well as ones personality in the end.

Saunders about the importance of STEM education and, how STEM News Chronicle is bringing awareness to the general public concerning how we can inspire young people and let their minds set off on a voyage of discovery.
