Listen to May’s Curiosity Unplugged Podcast on Young Women and STEM

Curiosity Unplugged is the talk show where Illinois Tech faculty members leave no topic unexplored, no challenge unconsidered, and no query unanswered. Each month Chris White, physics professor and vice provost for academic affairs, and Architecture Assistant Studio Professor Colleen Humer, along with Illinois Tech faculty guests discuss deep questions facing society today.

This month’s podcast, “Why Do Many Young Women Lose Interest in Pursuing STEM Careers?,” features Physics Senior Lecturer and Associate Chair Sally Laurent-Muehleisen, Professor of Sociology Ullica Segerstrale, and Adjunct Faculty Member Vida Winans.

You can listen to the current podcast and the other 12 episodes on Illinois Tech’s News siteCuriosity Unplugged is recorded at the A. Sidney Katz Radio Studio at WIIT 88.9 FM, Illinois Tech’s radio station. It airs on the first Wednesday of each month at noon and on the first Thursday of each month on iTunes, Google Play, and Stitcher.
