Episode 10: A STEM of advice
We’re back! After a brief hiatus, we’re proud to unleash our series finale: A STEM of Advice. It’s our most jam-packed episode yet, featuring tips and tricks from almost every guest we’ve interviewed so far.
Our guests will take you through their greatest STEM achievements - and their greatest failings - in order to prepare you for your own upcoming adventures. Still unsure about a career in STEM? Feeling worried about your studies? Fear not - these reactions are normal, and will soon pass. If you don’t believe us, just listen to Amy Shepherd, or Grace McKee, or Ellen Sandell...well, you get the picture.
Then, three of our reverse-engineers are back to dish out the FYIs for your future STEM-studying self.
This episode’s reverse engineering is presented by Erin Grant, who will uplift you with her high-flying facts on helium.
