EAST LANSING, Mich., May 25, 2023 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Author Veronica A.

STEAM and STEM have been a part of the education conversation for a number of years now, and interested parties may already know that people of color and women are underrepresented in these fields, but how can parents, mentors and others in the community help remedy this problem? In this book, Wilkerson-Johnson offers interested adults practical advice for encouraging the children in their lives to pursue these career fields.

“In this primer I seek to inspire parents, mentors, and the community alike to guide students in their quest for Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Mathematics related education and careers, and engage them in meaningful experiences, and identify resources and networks that will propel them to academic and career opportunities,” said Wilkerson-Johnson.
