Science, Technology, Mathematics, Engineering. The four pillars to the acadmic disciplines known across the nation as “STEM.” From The Big Bang Theory to Silicon Valley, STEM has found its place in pop-culture an the amalgamation of nerds, geeks and losers.
It turns out, we’re a lot more than that.
Every week, I’ll be interviewing someone from the STEM industry, whether its a student, educator, or a professional. We’ll be discussing everything, from their childhood dream jobs, to the defining moments in their career.
The Science of Being Human’s goal is to illuminate the humanity in STEM. People in STEM aren’t the socially deficient robots that you see on TV. They’re driven, passionate, empathetic, and kind. But most of all, they’re human. And sometimes, we’re the ones who have the hardest time remembering that.
The Science of Being Human shares the stories of members in the STEM Industry, from where they started, to where they are now, how they got there, and what they learned along the way. The show will also highlight the gender disparity in the industry, and answer the question “so what do scientists really do?"

This week I'll be talking to Wyatt Kohler, an electrical engineering major at Moorpark College. He's charming, hilarious, and the kind of guy you'd want to introduce to your parents - even if he's not your boyfriend. On this episode of "The Science of Being Human," we discuss failure, success, being a non-traditional STEM student, and the value of community college.
Wyatt, thank you so much for being a part of my little project. You are an incredible friend, and an incredible human being.
