We’re connected to others by both the social and cognitive ties we have with them. These ties represent not only the social relationship we have with someone through kinship or friendship, but also the exchange of knowledge, thoughts and memories that link us.
In ways, a cognitive tie may represent relations tied and connected by shared perspectives, information, memories and ideas.
Cognitive Ties is a blog dedicated to individuals in STEM sharing their perspectives on science, research and diversity.
Goals for Cognitive Ties-
To create a platform where STEM students can share their perspectives by pitching and submitting pieces on science, research, diversity, higher education, student life, and more
To showcase the diversity of STEM through the interview series Science Narratives where students answer in-depth questions about their journey and progress in science and research
To address science misconceptions through the series Evidence-Based by having scientists and students in STEM clarify misconceptions about topics from their own field of study
To combat the stereotypes associated with STEM and encourage others to get involved by featuring the perspectives and journeys of scientists and students in STEM
