Almost 6 decades ago, folks could have told me to shut up. (OK. They did. I didn’t listen. I still don’t.)

I’ve often written how I was bound and determined to develop concepts for dialysis since I was a tyke. OK. Maybe not a tyke in the true definition (not that it’s all that clear how old a tyke may be), but by 8 years of age.

Way back in the prehistoric age, when I was going to college, there were very few women heading for the engineering profession. Nor were there a slew of Black folks. As a matter of fact, my engineering/science college (undergraduate) had about 5 women enrollees. And, to the best of my knowledge there were significantly less than 3 score (there may have been 10) Black students. Out of an undergraduate population of nearly 3000.

First, let me reminisce. Then, I will share some fantastic news. And, then explain why it’s even more incredible than just fantastic.

I’ve always been a great fan of Big Band music and Jazz. So, I was only slightly surprised to hear Herbie Hancock explain the confluence of STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) and jazz. He strongly believes that there is an intrinsic link between building things and playing music. Which, of course, means that our schools’ idea of cutting music from the curriculum is not helping our kids with STEM education.

Not quite the culmination- but the week of “Spring Ahead” is a major one for those who’ve been working since “Fall Back”.

Teaching STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) to younger students is still not doing too well. Oh, we’re teaching it- but the kids aren’t really learning it as well as they should. (I’ve written about this plenty. Here’s but one example.)
