Season 2: Audio Journey #10- The Importance of STEM in the Marvel Film Black Panther

Science fiction and entertainment have long served as gateways for inspiring young people to get involved in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) careers. Aside from its transcendent cultural impact, the Marvel Studios film Black Panther presented many thought provoking and inspirational STEM concepts. Joining us for a discussion on the importance of STEM in the film Black Panther, is civil engineer and certified P.E. (professional engineer) Winnie Okello, who is not only a native of the East African country of Kenya, but she also heads up the website Africa Engineering News which provides the latest news and information about the engineering, technology, and innovation related happenings taking place on the continent of Africa.

This episode is just one example of the many kinds of effective conversations you can have using the film Black Panther to help inspire young people to #ConnectWithTheTech.

Black Panther is now available on Blu-Ray, DVD, digital download, and streaming on NetFlix.
