Diversity in Science Carnival

Soulclap to Urban Science Adventures for pointing us to the 4th installment of the Diversity in Science Carnival is up. Please stop by to check out the great post contributions about programs that increase diversity in the halls of academia.

These carnivals are in prepartion for ScienceOnline2010. Anne Jefferson of Highly Allochthonous (ScienceBlogs) will lead a discussion about programs that broaden participation in STEM and how the Internet can be used to raise the profile of and build support networks for women and minority scientists and engineers. BDPA supporters are encouraged to join the discussion here.

BETF-Blog plans to join the Diversity in Science Carnival next month when the topic is STEM Diversity and Broad Impacts II: Pre-college and Programs for general audiences. We have a number of blog posts about successful, ambitious and inspiring diversity programs for youth and general audiences such as after-school programs, summer institutes, and citizen science programs.
