2022 #LatinxInSTEM ScienceTalk Session

We produced a session at the 2022 ScienceTalk conference:

Communicating Science in Español: Reaching a Global Latinx Spanish Audience

The USA's Latinx/Hispanic population is growing and there is also a large Spanish-speaking audience world-wide; all of whom should be educated about science. Social media enables such public science communication as well as allows minority scientists to build support networks. Learn from the examples of @LatinXinBME (biomedical engineering), @GeoLatinas (geoscience), and @LatinxChem (Chemistry).
