In the ten weeks that Rose Buchmann worked at The Mayo Clinic this summer, the college junior got a chance to try out new lab techniques and learn more about what a full-time career in science looks like. The internship, arranged by AAAS' EntryPoint! program, also gave Buchmann a chance to make lasting connections with the people she hopes will be her future colleagues.

Shirley Malcom: Institutional Barriers to Equality Are 'Hobbling the Ability to Move Forward Together'

Institution leaders and others in the science community must do more to create welcoming environments for women, minorities, and other under-represented groups, and "call out unfairness whenever and wherever it appears," AAAS Director of Education and Human Resources Shirley Malcom wrote today in a Science editorial.

This is exactly what teenagers my age should start reading... I also think that classics like Silent Spring and The Origin of Species should be added to the list.
