Over the years, STEM Advocate and Educator, Dr. Darryl Baynes has created an entertaining formula for successfully communicating to students the relevance and importance of pursuing careers in science, technology, engineering, and math. MAEA, or the Minority Aviation Education Association, is the largest science and math outreach company in the nation owned and operated by African Americans.
Who would ever think there is so much to know about the simple concepts of hot and cold? The video below provides detailed demonstrations of these concepts with an opportunity for viewers to provide educated guesses as to the outcomes of several experiments.
Dr. Baynes also provides a much more extensive program that features empowering messages for minority and all students as well as inventions by women, Hispanic, Black, and other diverse individuals. It encourages viewers to challenge their own stereotypes and provides a positive vision where all young people are able to thrive on their creativity and talent.
