BU Alumni Forum to be held Tuesday

BLUFFTON — Andrea Motto, manager of public and youth engagement at the Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History, will present the Alumni Forum, “Privilege, Resilience and Equity in Science Education,” at 11 a.m. Tuesday in Yoder Recital Hall.

Motto specializes in youth development in museums and focuses her research on power in science education, environmental justice and barriers to STEM participation for low-income students and students of color. She is currently participating in a National Science Foundation research team studying faculty bias in the geosciences and an international committee on equity in museums.

Her presentation will highlight how her experiences growing up in a working class immigrant community guided her toward her current work in addressing issues of race, class and culture in predominately white institutions.
