How can teachers expose their students to more engineering role models? What do they do if they don’t have time to arrange visits and field trips? That’s where Sarah McAnulty comes in. Sarah is a biology PhD student who also recently started Skype a Scientist, which is a free program to match scientists and engineers with K-12 classrooms.
