Presented by:
Sibrina N. Collins, Ph.D.,
The Marburger STEM Center, Lawrence Technological University, Southfield, MI

It is critically important to use student experiences and make key connections to classroom content. Pop culture provides a unique platform to engage students in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) fields. In this discussion, we will focus on using popular movies such as Black Panther and Mary Shelley’s novel Frankenstein for classroom engagement in STEM and the Humanities disciplines. In addition, we will also discuss the ongoing public engagement efforts and programming for LTU’s Marburger STEM Center.
