Joanne Manaster      

Biology Lecturer & STEM Education Advocate

Joanne Manaster, a faculty lecturer in biology at the University of Illinois’s School of Integrative Biology, enthusiastically shared her passion for science in the online and garnered one of the largest followings on social media. She experiments with multiple new media formats to help further her platform, which is to share science stories to pique the interest the general public without sensationalism, to encourage the reading of great popular science books and to support and encourage youth, particularly girls, to consider STEM careers. In all of these endeavors, Joanne displays a sincere and overt support for those who are on the front lines of increasing scientific knowledge and thinking: the science teachers in America’s schools.
