Alan Friedman on Science and After School Programs

Recently, Coalition Director Carol Tang organized a double session at the AAAS conference in Boston about scientists in after school settings. Among the many notable speakers on the panel was Alan Friedman, an independent education consultant. Alan was CEO and Director of the New York Hall of Science from 1984 to 2006, and has been frequently recognized for his work in informal science education.

Hello,

My name is Selina Lee and I’m with the Andrew Goodman Foundation, a non-profit organization that seeks to recognize, create, and encourage effective action towards social justice and civil rights. Andrew Goodman was 20 years old when he traveled to Mississippi in 1964 for Freedom Summer, a volunteer program that registered African- Americans to vote. You can read more about the organization here: http://www.andrewgoodman.org

In honor of Women’s History Month and this year’s theme (Women in STEM), we’re publishing some content on our blog and social media pages relating to women who’ve broken into these fields, and young girls who are still seeking an entry point. Considering your background and success in your field, we’re wondering if you would like to write a guest post for our blog this month. We’re mostly focusing on the difficulties of entering STEM careers for women, particularly with regards to the local and/or federal government (funding, opportunity, educational resources, etc). If you’re willing to share your insights, advice, and experiences with our readers, we’d really appreciate it. Here’s a link to our blog: http://www.blog.andrewgoodman.org

Thanks so much, and please let us know if you’re interested. You can reach us at andy@littlebiggirl.co.

Sincerely,
Selina Lee

Hi Selina,
My sincere apologies for not getting back to you about this. CSAS has been going through some transitions lately, which have delayed some communications. Your organization sounds interesting, and thanks for your interest in CSAS!

Again, apologies!
