Adolescence is a time of self-exploration—when youth imagine many possibilities as they begin to think about careers. Join Dr. Trish Wonch Hill as we explore a study that examines how mindsets and cultural biases about who can be a scientist might limit the possibility of science selves for boys and girls.

Dr. Wonch Hill is an applied sociologist who collaborates with scientists across STEM disciplines to investigate how to spark STEM career interests during childhood and adolescence. She is particularly interested in how to find STEM pathways for youth who belong to historically underrepresented groups (girls, rural youth, race/ethnic minorities). Dr. Wonch Hill grew up in western Nebraska and attended the University as a first generation college student.
