Students often listen to distinguished speakers. But this time, the tables were reversed.
Bianca Chavis, an IUPUI student, was onstage, speaking to the leadership teams of the National Science Foundation and the American Association for the Advancement of Science as well as more than 600 other members of science organizations, university officials and students.
Chavis had been selected to address that audience as one of five members of the Student Voices panel at the 2019 National Science Foundation Scholarships in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics program symposium in Washington, D.C.
