MMSA Title: Research Associate

This work, combined with her lived experiences as a Mainer, ignited Bethany’s passion for bridging the gaps between scientific discovery, students and educators, and community members. Her work at MMSA reinforces her belief that anyone can get involved with math and science, and her dedication to diversifying the field of STEM.
