Diversity in STEM

Black History Month: Black Canadians in STEAM

This month, instead of sharing a fun science, technology, engineering, and/or math (STEM) fact, we've decided to feature some great Black Canadians in STEM. When I started researching, I was excited to find a bunch of different incredible stories of Black women in STEM in Canada, but I after a bunch of different search terms, I started to get frustrated. Why didn't the Canadian Encyclopedia have a section in their "Black History in Canada" collection about STEM? They have athletes, activities, and authors, but not scientists or engineers.
