Call for Submissions: Diversity in Science Carnival for Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month

May is Asian-Pacific Heritage Month and we will celebrate with another Diversity in Science Carnival: the blog carnival that celebrates people, innovations, and programs that promote diversity in STEM!

According to the website on Asian-Pacific month, “Asian-Pacific” refers to “all of the Asian continent and the Pacific islands of Melanesia (New Guinea, New Caledonia, Vanuatu, Fiji and the Solomon Islands), Micronesia (Marianas, Guam, Wake Island, Palau, Marshall Islands, Kiribati, Nauru and the Federated States of Micronesia) and Polynesia (New Zealand, Hawaiian Islands, Rotuma, Midway Islands, Samoa, American Samoa, Tonga, Tuvalu, Cook Islands, French Polynesia and Easter Island).” This is a rather broad definition that represents many different cultures and ethnicities, and we hope to represent as many as possible for this carnival.

We seek submissions written by Asian-Pacific scientists and/or profiles of Asian-Pacific scientists, innovators, mentors, teachers, students, parents, or anyone else who contributes to our scientific community. This carnival is open to all: science bloggers, education bloggers, history/political science bloggers, and personal blogs. Please use the Diversity in Science Blog Carnival Submissions form or reply to this post or any other post on the UW SACNAS Chapter Blog with your link. The deadline is Friday, May 25th, 2012.  

If you have not had a chance, please read April’s Diversity in Science Carnival on the Imposter Syndrome, hosted by Scicurious.

As a student chapter of SACNAS in the Pacific Northwest, we have a large Asian-Pacific membership base and we are thrilled to have the opportunity of hosting this month’s carnival. We look forward to reading your submissions!
