My Virtual Greeting to X-STEM All Access Conference
Posted on by Dr. Francis Collins
The USA Science & Engineering Festival just held its X-STEM All Access conference, though this year in a virtual format. It was my pleasure to videotape some brief remarks for the conference, and I offer them here to share the excitement and encourage young people to consider careers in the sciences. The opportunities that await in the biomedical sciences in particular are unprecedented, and there are lots of great jobs to be had. X-STEM All Access is an interactive online experience for kids. Through a series of daily livestream events, students will hear from an exclusive group of visionaries about careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. My videotaped remarks were shown on May 18, 2020.
