There are the kinds of skills that students develop in science, technology, engineering, and math, including computer science—disciplines collectively known as STEM/CS.

Careers in STEM-related fields are vast and diverse. They include careers in the pharmacy, energy, programming, and engineering fields. However, STEM careers may also take the form of medical researchers, network communications expert, or agricultural professional. Finance, risk analysis, and even athletic training have elements of STEM in them. And, of course, teaching is an essential career that stimulates young minds in the STEM fields.

In this session, we will hear more about one scientist’s journey from Colombia to Cornell. We will dive into her inspirations and insights that led to a patent in the field of plant pathology. Insights, that might be useful to finding our own breakthroughs in life!
