Discover Your STEM Potential By Following This One Piece of Advice

If you want to know about cutting-edge inventions that help people, exciting experiments, and all-around STEM power (science, technology, engineering, and math), who better to talk to than a STEM Scout?

That’s exactly what Time for Kids magazine’s “kid reporter” did in a recent interview with Anjali R., Middle Tennessee Council’s STEM Scout of the Year.

Anjali, who recently invented a life-saving device for snake bites, opened up to Time for Kids about her passion for science, and her dream of one day becoming a geneticist or epidemiologist. She explained she’s keeping her mind open though, and for this STEM Scout, the sky is the limit!

When asked what tips she would give to other aspiring kid scientists, the ingenious inventor shared this golden piece of advice:

“Don’t give up if you don’t find a solution. Always ask the question “Why?” I have always enjoyed the process of researching and finding a solution. If I fail, I will come back and try a different method. I would say to never give up and have fun!”

And that’s not all! See what Anjali had to say about her latest inventions, forensic science, girls in STEM, and more by reading the full interview from Time for Kids magazine.
