Explosive Experiments

The best way to keep people excited about S.T.E.M. and to advocate for S.T.E.M. diversity is to meet them where they are at, no matter how far they are. 

If you're interested in experimental reactions and want to create a mess while learning about exothermic reactions and catalysts, view this video where Dr. Tay shows you how to perform the Elephant Toothpaste experiment. 

This event was brought to you by the Western Area Chapters of the Links, Incorporated and the Lenovo Foundation.

Lataisia Jones, Ph.D. is so MUCH more than a Scientific Research Officer (SRO) in the Scientific Review Branch (SRB) at NINDS. Before joining the NINDS, Dr. Jones worked as the Senior Ethics Specialist and contributed to the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) efforts at the American Society for Microbiology (ASM). She is a volunteer writer, national mentor, and keynote speaker helping to influence young girls to pursue a STEM career, AND you may remember her recently being honored for her contributions to STEM with a traveling statue.
