Diversity in Science

There is a common misconception that science is almost entirely comprised of white men. The goal of this collection is to educate high schoolers about the diversity that is present in the scientific community. These resources discuss the diversity that can be found in the scientific field, and the inclusion of different abilities, races, and genders. These resources also discuss the continued movement towards equality in the field.
