To help students see themselves with a future in STEM and to broaden their understanding of science history, it is essential for students to learn about a diverse range of scientists and engineers. In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month (which runs from September 15 to October 15), we are featuring the contributions of Latinx and Hispanic people that have impacted and are impacting STEM.

Check out the IF/THEN Collection to get images and information on Latina Ambassadors Roselin Rosario-Meléndezs, Polymer Chemist, Minerva Cordero, Mathematician, and Mathematics Professor, and Luz Claudio, Environmental Health Scientist. These are great for classroom posters, social media, and activities.
