VIDEO: DR. CYNTHIA LEE OF STANFORD ON WOMEN IN STEM

Dr. Cynthia Lee teaches computer science at Stanford University. Dr. Lee shares how young children (girls and boys) are equally interested in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), but by the time they enter middle school that interest appears to undergo a change and the number of girls interested in STEM declines. She shares how she went through a similar phase and lost interest in math. Her reasoning was since she could solve the math problems quickly enough and slowly lost interest in the subject. Around high school she re-discovered her love for math and went on to do a PhD in computer science. Tune in to find out what else Dr. Lee has to share on the subject on Women in STEM.

This interview with Dr. Lee is from our Women in Science & Technology TV series sponsored by Zoho.

Is filmmaker Richard Linklater a vivid, visual thinker? That was the question I asked him. He has some version of photographic memory shares Linklater. His mom thought something weird was going on and he got tested for it as a kid, but that visual thinking did not help him in school he says. It was not until he was in his early 20’s that he discovered films and that is when his visual thinking helped him as a filmmaker. It is a skill you should have as a filmmaker Linklater says.
