Calendar to Celebrate Diversity in STEM Year-round
First Book, in partnership with the Aerospace Industries Association (AIA), has created the 2020–2021 Diversity in STEM Calendar, a free tool designed to help educators bring amazing moments of innovation to life and showcase the incredible contributions of diverse STEM pioneers with children across the country. The calendar highlights game-changing contributions of women and people of color to science, medicine, space exploration, artificial intelligence development, and more. It includes fascinating facts, religious and cultural observances, and notable dates of cultural, historical, or inclusive significance in STEM fields. In addition, the calendar includes instructions for science investigations that require minimal materials and no special equipment. The freely downloadable 2020–2021 Diversity in STEM Calendar is available in English and Spanish.
