Melissa Pearcy is a winner.
And even if the video she recently submitted to a national competition didn’t actually win, she’d still be a winner, just for the truths about STEM education that she believes in and her desire to share those with others.
But she did win an award so perhaps she could be called a double-winner.
Each year, The Science Coalition (TSC), which is a nonprofit, nonpartisan group of more than 50 research universities, hosts a video challenge for students like Melissa to tell their stories and help spread the word about why science matters.
As the TSC says: “The power of a great story can change the world.”
Melissa’s video won Honorable Mention.
