On April 3rd at 3:30 p.m., Raven Baxter, also known as Dr. Raven the Science Maven with a following of over 200,000, will be giving a talk at the Nebraska Union Swanson Auditorium. The event is free and open to the public.

Trained as a molecular biologist and science educator, Baxter’s mission is to make science accessible to everyone, foster curiosity, and bridge the gap between complex scientific concepts and the general public. She has gained popularity with her hip-hop science videos and has started the Black in SciComm and Black in STEM Education movements. She now leads the Science Haven, a nonprofit organization focused on making science engaging for people of all backgrounds, regardless of their scientific knowledge.

During her talk, Baxter will have an informal conversation with Jocelyn Bosley, the research impact coordinator in the Office of Research and Economic Development. They will discuss Baxter’s journey in STEM, the challenges and opportunities for creating a more diverse and inclusive STEM community, and creative strategies for making science engaging and relevant to a wider audience.

The event is sponsored by Nebraska EPSCoR with additional support from the School of Biological Sciences, Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Department of Physics and Astronomy, Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences, and the Center for Science, Math
