Season 1: The STEM Brothers Podcast Episode 13: STEM C.S.I.- Insights into the STEM Careers in Law Enforcement

The STEM Brothers Podcast returns with our 13th episode featuring yet another incredible guest! If you’ve watched any television over the last 16 years, then you know how popular the the media franchise CSI (Crime Scene Investigation) is. CSI and shows like it highlight the skilled work of STEM professionals known as Forensic Scientists. Joining us on this episode is a STEM professional with first-hand insight into this incredibly intriguing and important area of STEM, Dr. Holly Porter. Dr. Porter has her PhD in Molecular and Cell Biology and works as a crime lab scientist for a state law enforcement agency. During our riveting conversation, not only did Holly give some great insight into the career field of forensic science, she also provided some great information on the strategies and resources that helped her with her academic and professional accomplishments. You can learn more about the programs we covered during our discussion with Dr. Porter at the following websites: The P...

Season 1: The STEM Brothers Podcast Episode 14- Inspiration and Strategies for Connecting With The Tech

Welcome to the start of a new beginning!After a slew of technological, business, and personal challenges; we are back and ready resume our mission of helping to demonstrate the connection Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) has on our everyday lives. The mission is the same but we’ve modified and adapted our approach to maximize the impact of this show. To start this episode we explain the changes we’ve made to the show during our hiatus. Next, we once again re-establish the significance of our mission to enhance STEM literacy with some insight from astrophysicist Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson (@neiltyson, http://www.haydenplanetarium.org/tyson/) courtesy of footage from an interview he conducted with CNN. Also in this episode, we introduce our new mailbag segment of the show where we respond to question and comments sent in by you the listener.

Season 1: The STEM Brothers Podcast Episode 15- Infrastructure and You

The mission of this show is to highlight the important role Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics (STEM) related careers play in some of the world’s most important current events and public policy issues. For this first episode we take a look at our nation’s infrastructure. Before we address our main topic for this episode, we share some words from President Barrack Obama that come from a panel discussion held at the 2016 White House Frontiers Conference. We felt this statement from the president was incredibly valuable in helping to reaffirm the importance STEM literacy to our society. Our bridges, roads, tunnels, our water and electrical systems are just some of the many areas that make up our country’s infrastructure. A reliable and modern infrastructure is vital to the nation’s economy, as well as to our health and safety. Given its importance to our way of life, our nation’s infrastructure is in need of wide scale modernization. To help us discuss this important is...

Season 2: Relaunch- What’s New With The STEM Brothers Podcast?

Season 2: Audio Journey #1- Nuclear Energy and Its Place in the STEM Workforce Ecosystem

We begin the next phase of The STEM Brothers podcast journey with a look at nuclear energy. This is an often misunderstood and overlooked area of Science Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). Not only is nuclear power still a major source of energy for nations around the world, but the science behind nuclear energy is being applied to a variety fields from medicine to insect control. In this episode we are joined by nuclear engineer and National GEM Consortium Fellow, Luis Ocampo, who gives us an inside perspective into the field of nuclear energy. We get Luis’s take on common misconceptions about working at a nuclear power plant, as well as his on personal journey through this fascinating STEM field.

Season 2: Audio Journey #2- THINKing About IBM & STEM Careers

One of the best ways to add context to the fields of Science Technology, Engineering & Math (STEM) is to see how different companies and organizations implement the principles of STEM in practical ways. With that in mind, we will periodically be using this show to briefly profile institutions that engage in STEM related work. For our first entry into our series of episodes profiling STEM based organizations, we take a brief look at the company IBM. This longtime bellwether of computing technology is still at the forefront of creating new leading-edge tools and services for our increasingly digital world. In this episode we speak with former IBM software developer, Latoya Davis, and learn a little bit of what it is like working inside the hub ofinnovation that is IBM.

Season 2: Audio Journey #3- Discovering Drones: STEM Careers & The Rise of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV)

In this episode of The STEM Brothers podcast we take a look at Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) related career opportunities that have been created as a result of the proliferation of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), or drones, being used for commercial/non-military applications. More and more drones are being used for an array of purposes ranging from the delivery of crucial medical supplies, to pest control, to surveying buildings and landscapes for construction purposes. From small farms to big budget Hollywood movie sets, drones are an increasingly popular technological tool, and the demand and opportunity for STEM professionals who can design, build, and operate drones is steadily growing as well. Joining us for this conversation is our special guest, Ms. Taylor Mitcham, who is the founder and Chief Drone Operator of the drone services company SkyNinja.

Season 2: Audio Journey #5- Professional Scientists and the STEM Career Ecosystem; with Neuroscientist, Dr. Lisa Moore (Part 1 of 3)

The Science Technology Engineering and Math (STEM) career ecosystem encompasses a wide range of vocational possibilities. Over the next three episodes we want to explore the intricacies of research/ laboratory science based career paths. Professional scientists who work in labs and conduct high-level research play an indispensable role in the well-being of our society. The work these scientists do impact our health, safety, as well as our understanding of the world we live in. Yet, while many of us are familiar with the traditional careers in engineering, technology, and medicine; the career paths of professional scientists are not as well known. Professional science careers are as unique as they are challenging. Whether it is obtaining funding for research, or getting published in scientific journals; being a scientist is a fulfilling professional journey.
