Christine Taylor-Butler's MLK Scholar Presentation: "The Importance of Dreaming: Why Diversity Matters in STEM and Children’s Literature"

Christine Taylor-Butler

MIT Alumna ('81) + Current MLK Scholar

Dec 5, 2023 Dec 5 2023 12-1pm Hybrid

Synopsis: Christine Taylor-Butler, ‘81, MLK Visiting Scholar and author of children’s literature, shares her journey from living in an urban environment where systemic barriers limited access to opportunities to writing as an act of civil disobedience. Despite advances in education, students from urban and rural areas are still entering kindergarten with lower STEM literacy levels and are unable to make up the gap by grade twelve. She’ll discuss the importance of integrating STEM into all aspects of literature, the barriers that still remain in children’s publishing, and how books often fuel the “dreaming’ that helps children see potential beyond the boundaries of their neighborhoods.
