The world of science is both complex and diverse, and is enriched by the interactions of many people across many fields. Too often, we are shown or told an impoverished version of science that only speaks to one perspective - for example, that a drug is developed entirely in a silo by a bench scientist. This isn’t merely a sad fact about the state of education in many places, but a huge problem! Many young people who are interested in science are also interested in the law, or communications, or finance, or hardware, or software, or data analysis, or machine learning, or a range of other fields, and often don’t realize the huge opportunity that exists for them to combine their interests across the scientific sector.
LabXchange encourages you to both design content and help us educate the world - if you are a scientist, and also if you are not. We need to hear from everyone, and everyone needs to hear from you. Share your unique stories about a personal journey to and through scientific fields in the form of a narrative on LabXchange.
